is there any way to enable/disable the side-tone from the WinKey ICs 
when sending CW?
By default it is disabled, and if after DxLog initialization any trial 
program it (using the WinKey setup program), makes the serial port stuck 
in DxLog.
This would be very useful to send via paddle, being the CW out and 
manipulation shifted in time (to allow PTT delay).
(see also Vol 58, Issue 10)
