20 ms should work perfectly.

Interesting topic. Not sure if Mack was referring to the settings in SDR or what FT8 software you're using, but if it is wsjt-x, there is a setting under file, settings, advance, to cause a delay between PTT and the start of the transmitted audio. I think the default for wsjt-x is .2 seconds so that delay might already be in effect.

I was referring to SmartSDR TX Delay.
