cwdaemon & ptt
- A week or so ago someone posted a question on the behaviour of cwdaemon
& ptt. The following is from the xlog discussion group.

sent, the ptt turns on only for a brief instant and turns off again,
even though the message is still being sent. If the ptt delay parameter
is set to 50ms, then ptt will stay on for the first word of an Fn
message (if it is at high speed). If I type in the keyer window, the ptt
clicks on very briefly with each keypress, but does not stay on long
enough to actually encompass a character such as 0.

sorry for the late reply.
It looks like PTT isn't working at all (* anyone on the list that can
confirm this? *). When I programmed it, I did not have a setup available
that uses PTT. With my kenwood TS-870S I don't need it.
I looks like I need to have another look at the PTT code. Currently I am
a little hooked up on other projects, so I can't make any short-term
