I recently took delivery of spe expert 2kw pa. it's hooked up manually with no cat lead at present and just ptt lead from my flex 6300. First time out in a domestic cw contest on 80m and some stations had difficulty with my call. A check post contest with a local friend confirmed that semi break in on just the 6300 manually keyed with paddle or PC keyed with n1mmplus displayed no lost first characters. However when the amp was put into operate and keyed the first one or two dits were missing in the tx.
I do not usually use qsk and generally have the delay in semi break in set to 460ms.
Can someone point me in the right direction to solve this problem in settings as I have probably missed something.

Been there, ran into the same problem. Have you put the fans to quiet mode? No way to do it in cw without loosing 1st character.
