Is there anyone who makes/sells an amplifier keying buffer with a delay, so that the amp is keyed first, then the radio sends RF output to the amp?
All of the ones I have seen and called about, the radio is keyed first then with the full output of the radio, and amplifier, the amplifiers relay is energized. This happens no matter how fast the radio, buffer, or amplifier relay/transistor operates. It can be seen on radios with a SWR bar graph, as an SWR spike every time the amplifier is keyed. Only radio/amp combinations engineered for QSK on CW do not do this.
Please would someone build/sell these Amp buffers where the amp is energized, then the radios output to the amp is in effect.
