      I'm using cwdaemon on regular basis. No problem with low latency custom
      kernel (also with tickless option), tried also to change the code to
      enable speeds above 60 wpm. Works well.

      I expect that timing problems are caused by kernel issues. It affects
      also the PTT. I got awful results with "factory" multi-purpose kernel
      provided in my Slackware distro, however if changed to my custom kernel,
      things turned to its better side.

      P.S. CW only, high-speed with QSK preferred. No digi fan as well...

        PTT in cwdaemon has not worked correctly for years now. Is anyone ever going to fix it? Is this program not maintained anymore. PTT works in fldigi and gMFSK, also in N1MM and HRD under winxp. So it's just cwdaemon that doesn't work. Been a bug for at least four years now.

              Adrian, here is my config

              cw keying works just fine ( using DTR as shown in supplied drawings for cwdaemon)

              PTT energizes for just a split second (using RTS as shown in the drawings). It should hold the PTT line until sending is finished.

              And yes, I could use VOX or Full Break-in.

                  still needs some finishing as I think).

                  But anyway best to have a look at http://cwdaemon.sourceforge.net/
