Gotta put in a vote for the EZKeyer myself. It vy easy to use with lots of easy
to use features, and changind speede is as easy asy with a pot I think. Hold
the programming key and tap the dot or dash paddles for up or down in 2 wpm
incrrements, easy peasy. It also is very easy to "paddlize" (izzat a word?).
Sending with it is very very smooth.

There are indeed many good keyers out there, and ours is one of the best imo. I
also have a CMOS II that sits on the shelf.
Back to the bench, Winter's too valuable to waste.
I love this radio stuff !
