Internal Keyer Latency -- Paddle press to Sidetone

There is too much latency between the time a paddle is pressed and the sidetone is generated when using the internal keyer. This is a real and noticeable delay that does not exist when using an external keyer. It is much longer than the internal keyers on other rigs I have.

It should be easy to measure with a scope but if I had to guess it feels like up to about 50 ms at times.

It makes using the internal keyer feel odd and sluggish. I know of at least one other person that has quit using the internal keyer for that reason.

Please check the latency and let us know what you measure and what you consider acceptable.

Thanks, Al / NN4ZZ
