With the serial mods you can use your favorite logging program to send CQ and follow QRG plus RIT. May not work for you for portable, but I almost always take my computer anyway.

OK, Curt, you convinced me at our today's eyeball meeting. I
just ordered a Hilltopper 20. Won't start it until I get my 40
meter Organic W8DIZ (Kits and Parts rig up and running.) I still
wish the Hilltopper keyer had a memory. For me, it seems almost
useless without it. Most likely will use an outboard keyer with a
memory so the internal one won't be used. Why call CQ over and
over again when a memory keyer with the CQ stored in it will do it
for you. Don't understand the reasoning for no memory when a chip
costs around $5 with a memory. Will also take your advice and use
Vishey bypass caps. (I threw the green ones away in the Organic
40 and used good quality Vishey there too.) Other then that, I am
looking forward to getting a Hilltopper 20 on the air.

Just want to thank whoever packs these kits with bagged assembly
groups keyed to the instructions and the bom. It makes assembly a
real pleasure. Someone spent a lot of time, effort, sweat
thinking through and packaging this kit. I am only on group 3,
but the journey has been fun. Any misnakes will be my fault :-o
