Excellent, thanks to Larry and Steve for the update. I will update my script to utilize the new information.
The one I wrote monitors the UDP traffic and switches the SPE 2K-FA's input to match the tx-focused radio instantly, so that the next transmission happens after the relays have had time to switch.
I tried a few other approaches such as sending a key down macro to the K3 which causes the amp to detect and switch on its own, but that approach still resulted in the K3 seeing an undesirable load for a fraction of a second and backing off tx power. I believe the recent firmware update to the K3 makes it more cautious with respect to power back-off when it senses a sub-optimal load.
In any case, I'm hoping that my new script (which talks to the 2K-FA via USB serial) will make this happen a bit faster. I'm currently using a space character before the text of my CW macros to allow the relays time to switch.
If anyone is using a 2K-FA for SO2R and would like a copy of my script, please let me know.
