CW keying Stutter

I have a 6600M running v3.1.8.  Lately when operating CW I have heard the CW keying stutter.  What happens is, I will hear the characters come out wrong for a short period.  The time length is maybe 2 letters long at the most, then it recovers.  I don't think this is going out over the air that way.  As other stations seem to be able to copy me just fine.  I am hearing this in the sidetone.

This has happened with the shack PC and a laptop PC as well.

Looking thru the site, I do not see any other reports such as this.  Any thoughts out there?

Hi John, does this also happen if you use MOX to turn on PTT before sending CW? Listen on remote SDR if it is heard over the air. There are lots of Kiwi SDRs you can listen to.

I'm hearing the same thing you are. I was going to move back to previous software versions to see if it goes away. Did you recently upgrade to 3.1.8? What version were you using before?
