The Repeat-After-Delay Command "D", was implemented in the EZKeyer II.
It has changed slightly, but significantly, in the EZKeyer III.

The D command is used in conjunction with sending messages stored in memory. When a "D" is entered, the keyer requests one character. The operator enters one digit - from 0 to 9 - which indicates the number of seconds to delay after a message is sent before the message is sent again. i.e a 2 = 2 sec delay. Note: This is different from the EZKeyer II where a 2 equaled a 1 sec delay.

The keyer continues to repeat the current message until one or both of the paddles are pressed. When a "0" (or no character) is entered for the delay, the repeat feature is disabled.

This function was provided especially for Contesters, Beaconeers and QRPers. Not only useful for beacons, it also is useful for calling CQ automatically with enough delay between calls to hear a response. Call-Listen, Call-Listen, etc. This is a technique used by contesters and many QRPers.
