3.2.31 Maestro CW Keying Slow RX Recovery
I have a 6500 with a Maestro and software 3.2.31. It seems to be performing well on CW.
Has anyone else noticed that when listening to audio through the Maestro there is a slow and choppy recovery from transmit to receive when keying using the Maestro key jack and internal keyer?
The delay is only about 30ms but is annoying and in a contest, you would miss the first letter of someone who is responding quickly.
I have tried AGC set to FST. Delay set to 40ms or more eliminates the problem since the delay is longer than the slow RX recovery. I tested with other DSP functions off.
If you key the radio directly instead of the Maestro I have noticed no issue.
Bottom line, it appears you can't do QSK using the Maestro internal keyer. Is that right or am I missing a setting?
