Support Winkey half dit delay
« on: 2022-11-18, 04:09:35 »
RRC 1258's Winkeyer emulation is missing various features.

One that is missing is "Gap (Extra Space) Insertion", where the Winkeyer protocol interprets the | character (hex 0x7C) as a dit delay time.

This is very useful, particularly in CW contest exchanges where adding space between some characters, or removing space between some words, can help message intelligibility. All major contesting programs such as N1MM+, DXLog, WinTest, etc. support this, but this feature doesn't work when using the 1258 Winkeyer.

My feature request: Implement this in the 1258 Winkeyer.

Thanks!
