Be certain you have T-R set to HOLD. See page 89 of the manual. The
T-R setting determines the delay, and the 8R hold or normal settings
will influence the behavior of the 8R signal (that signal controls the
K2 "keyout" timing.
At what code speeds - yes at slow speeds, the relays will "chatter" no
matter what the settings, but at 20+ wpm, the relays should hold in
The K2 uses silent electronic T/R switching, but the XVxxx transverters
use relays for T/R functions.
