TX Delay needed for FT8 and PGXL?

Is there a TX delay needed for FT8 while using the PGXL amp?

    20 ms should work perfectly.

    Interesting topic. Not sure if Mack was referring to the settings in SDR or what FT8 software you're using, but if it is wsjt-x, there is a setting under file, settings, advance, to cause a delay between PTT and the start of the transmitted audio. I think the default for wsjt-x is .2 seconds so that delay might already be in effect.
