    The keyer appears to be Iambic Mode A. Does anyone know if it can be changed to Mode B?

    A mode A keyer completes the element being sent when the paddles are released; a mode B
    keyer sends an additional element opposite the one being sent when the paddles are released.

    You can tell the difference by squeezing out a letter 'C'. With mode B one stops squeezing the
    paddles after hearing the second 'dah' but with mode A one must key the final 'dit'.

    Seems that we are stuck with mode A - I have dealt with this by building an external keyer using the K1EL chip. I have also begun using a single lever paddle with the mode A keyer, which minimizes my sending errors (although I would rather use the external iambic B keyer) ..... ;--)
