Hi Glenn - I got both replies OK. Thanks.

I was not expecting QSK operation!

Just wondered why they didn't make it so that the relay pulls in
when you switch to CW! No big deal, I can squeeze the mic in
one hand and work the straight key with the other.

Just a very illogical design. However, we have to keep in mind that the primary
application for this rig was mobile AM phone!
