Has Flex given up on better support for CW with the Maestro?  I just updated to 2.4.9. When using a key plugged into the Maestro, there is no sidetone on the radio speakers, only on the M. The tone still sounds very rough. There is no support for CWX macros. You can program the function keys on the M to send CW, but again there is no sidetone on the radio speakers.

I'm waiting for the fix to the Maestro's sidetone...but apparently it has been "in the works" for the past 2 years now. No Maestro for me til there is a fix. :-(

Mark, when You say a "key" so you mean paddles or a sk? I run a Maestro and there is sidetone in the headphones/speaker; or do you mean powered speakers?
Admittedly, the sidetone is clicky.

I have not the problem with keyer into Maestro at home site to remote 6600 and run N1MM locally on PC and with 2.4.9 hear all fine good sidetone for me anyway.  It is not coming from 6600 I know. When on-site with Maestro I just use Radio audio and plug in headphones to the 6600 and sidetone is fine as well.
