[arm-allstar] Rx On Delay Future Implementation

 This could be easily done but I am not understanding the utility of having
to wait 5 seconds to be able to talk.  That is an eternity and seems like
it would cause more trouble then help. What system needs 5 seconds to
propagate a keyup? It seems more like a system problem that should be
corrected. So if someone keys up they have to wait 5 seconds to talk? You
know that the majority of people will have 5 seconds of their audio cutoff
if they don't do that and it totally precludes moderately fast back and
forth discussions.
