QSK on 6700

From my post on the Yahoo Groups FlexRadioSmartSDR Group:

What does it take to shut off QSK on the 6700?  I thought any delay setting on the cwx panel would automatically shut off the QSK indicator in the slice.  I don't see that happening on ver 1,7 firmware even with a delay setting of 270.    With 0 delay I also get popping between characters like Greg mentioned on the Flec Community reflector when describing his  QSK  problems 2 years ago.

Did I miss a cw memo regarding this?

Lou is correct that it is always enabled if ANT1 or ANT2 are selected as the transmit antenna.  This is so the PIN diode does the switching instead of a mechanical relay.
