What is in the F1 message for the Advanced Scenario that you have selected?
 It should be something like this (copied from WT manual):

But there also seems to be a big difference between the u2R and the MK2R+.
 I couldn't get the u2R to obey the headphone switching commands $R2R2
etc., even on CW.

First, make sure the u2R is in "AUTO" mode (yellow LED) for both TX and RX:

A long press of BOTH R1 and R2 at the same time enables automatic
> headphone switching (AUTO mode).

If that doesn't fix it, go to the microHAM Router, select the Audio tab,
and choose how you want it to work.

Select the Latch options to put both ears on R2 when R1 transmits, and vice
versa.  Decide if you want it to work that way for "Manual TX" (speaking
into mic.) as well.

The microHAM u2R seems to be in control of the headphones at all times
whenever you transmit; it doesn't let software like Win-Test take over.
The MK2R+ doesn't work that way.
