This posting is for those who are trying to trouble shoot a CWX TX problem.

   Recently, I configured CWX for a VHF weak signal schedule and a number of other stations were monitoring as I started to transmit. After sending my information to the distant station via CWX the swl'ing stations told me that my cw was just gibberish totally undecipherable. I tried to listen to my CWX transmission via the Flex recording program but it doesn't seem to work in that mode. Anyway, I wasn't able to find any specific info for this problem in the Community archives but I did find a mention about delay settings by Al, (NN4LL) so I looked through my settings to compare notes. I found that my "TX Delay" setting was 0 (zero) so I set mine to 15, like Al's, and my CWX started working.  
   As Al posted, there are actually 3 delay settings in SSDR and mine follow Al's like this;
   TX Delay: 15
   CWX delay: 200
   Keyer Delay: 500

  I still need to fine tune my settings a bit since I'm running my VHF and UHF transverters and HF amp through a sequencer which has even more delaying actions. But I felt this was a very important piece of info for you CWX users.
