Where can I read about switching to CW Semi-Break-in vs what the Maestro is now (CW QSK).
Also where can I read about how to adjust delay times.  My Amp has an output relay, I don't want it switching on every Dit.  What is the best way to keep the amp in TX mode during letters and/or words but drop out between words (instead of between Dits as it is now).

Steven,

In the P/CW panel on the right side of the screen (of my no-M 6600), changed Delay from zero to something like 100-200ms.  If not enough delay for your liking, make it higher--adjustable up to two seconds.  I have mine set for 200ms, generally operate at about 25wpm, and this feels comfortable for me.

Thanks Jerry, maybe this is something I must do from SmartSDR.  Using the Maestro I go to
Menu>Phone/CW and I can select Breakin: Enabled or Disabled.  OK just tried it and when Disabled I control the TX mode with MOX or my foot switch.  That works for now.
Thank you
