Well I feel like a idiot. I have been having a bad time sending with paddles using my winkey usb. I was dropping the last character of letters when running above 25wpm. Finally figured that this was do to Iambic A being selected instead of Iambic B. Swapped it over to mode B and I am all better now.
Just a friendly tip if you are dropping dits or dahs.

K1EL's WinKey is the absolute best electronic keyer-- it is so versatile.  I've been using the "Ultimatic" mode in mine for a long time.  I also use its PTT output with adjustable lead-in and tail times for controlling the Rx antenna and the amplifier.

I learned the Ultimatic mode about 30-years ago and it has been my preferred mode when using paddles ever since.
