Task #255 — K1EL WinKey USB CW timing becomes very poor (Farnsworth style) when PTT delay is default 50 msAttached to Project— Win-Test

Both SM5AJV and KL7RA report poor CW timing (similar to Farnsworth mode with extra spaces between characters) when using the K1EL WinKey USB device with the Win-Test default value of PTT Delay = 50 ms specified in the Win-Test Interface Configuration.
Changing the PTT Delay to 0, 1 or even 13 ms seems to eliminate the problem.
The problem does not occur with WinKey chips inside the microHAM MK2R/MK2R+, it only happens with the K1EL WinKey USB box.
Please check to see that Win-Test is issuing the proper \"Set PTT Lead/Tail delay\" command to the WinKey. For 50 ms, the proper command is
for 50 ms lead in, 0 ms tail. Numbers are in units of 10ms (<01> = 10 ms) according to the Winkey USB Manual:
