Add a feature that would make the TX Relay act like a sequencer

Why do all the TX1,2,3 outputs fall out at the same time with release of PTT? They are timed going in, but collapse simultaneously with PTT release or TX delay, whichever is the >

It should be simple to implement a box that lists 1) switching order or 2) Key up delay / key down delay for each TX output. I hope this is added to the list after v.1.0 .

Don't forget a selectable "enable" for each port! As things stand now, a TX delay must be set = or > the longest timing of any of the three ports unlike the 5000 where the RF out waited on all the port switching on make and on break dropped RF out and reversed switching order.

In the FLEX-6000, the TX Delay is independent of the other timings for maximum flexibility. I have heard some concern that altering this to simply be the maximum of the other delays would be a better approach. This is a "one line code change," but before we make it, I'd like to see if there's anyone that needs this to work as it does now. If not, it's no problem to change it.
