cw key often does not xmit
I read all the messages about cw and I'm not sure my problem is the same as described in those msgs. I see lots of talk about cw dropout, is that what I have here.
Have a 6400M running v3.4.24. My problem is that often when I push any cw key the xmit light comes on briefly, maybe a half second, then the light goes out and the radio goes back to rcv. But the radio does not xmit, even for that brief time when the xmit light is shining bright red. Sometimes it even does that twice before it resumes normal xmiting. It does it with the first character of a letter or even in the middle of a letter.
I have adjusted the tx delay up and down. I have changed the Delay up and down. No difference. It does it whether using the face of the 6400M or using SSDR Multiflex.
I turned off the radio and when I turned it back on the problem was still there. I did a complete reset of the radio, reloaded the profiles and the problem persisted. It does it using a paddle inserted into the key jack and also using multiple different keys and key types hooked up to the acc plug.
It seems that this is not an external problem but rather is caused by an internal malfunction. Is there a work around that I have not yet tried? CW is more than half my operating so it is important to me.
