[WT-support] Slow response in bandmap

The WinKey and Win-Test default is 1200. I didn't think the WinKey chip
inside the microHAM was capable of working at any other speed, unless they
changed something.  What version of WinKey chip do you have and which
microHAM device and which firmware?

I suggest telling Win-Test to use 1200 baud for the WinKey port.
Otherwise, the problem may reoccur.  Better yet, use the radio's serial
port DTR pin for CW and don't use the WinKey at all.  Win-Test can send
great CW without it.

there was no other program oder device polling the K3. Instead, I
discovered my WinKey (via microham) was running at 1200bd instead of 9600.
I have no clue how that happened, but now the response delay is gone.
