Hi Arthur,

Welcome to the website and thanks for joining the group.

You mentioned that you have tried CWtype.

Have you ever checked out FLdigi ?

It has much better control over the CW timing and more features

as far as being able to adjust the rise and fall time,

dash to dot ratio, etc.   FLdigi uses an audio derived

keying interface to key the rig for the usual CW mode.  With

FLdigi you can also send CW using a2 afcw mode.  My Icom 735

now can send beautiful CW using FLdigi in afcw mode.  FLdigi

generates beautiful raised cosine edges for CW, a much better waveform

than the original ICOM 735 CW waveform.  I can also "dial in" FULL QSK

using AFCW with FLdigi's unique audio derived QSK FUNCTION. Before,

without FLDIGI, I was never able to use this rig in FULL QSK since it chopped off the leading edge of every cw note...but now,  using AFCW MODE and FLdigi, it works

perfectly once you make the proper adjustments with the FLdigi modem controls.
