Yes- both A and B modes.  If a 2-pin cable is present when the rig is powered up, it's in straight key mode. It passes whatever you put in from a key or external keyer.

Tnx got it, I searched on "Hill" and "topper"  but it looks like you have to search on "Hilltopper" for the search to find it. I've had that problem with other Windows searches and can't figure out why that is. I first thought it was a Yahoo problem but I've had the same problem now on various web pages, Anyway, tnx, got it.

Just a heads up.  If you are considering purchasing a Hilltopper kit I
only have 8 kits left and I have not heard any discussion about doing
another run.  This was a 50 kit run this time.  As John said, they are
great kits and Dave Benson did a fantastic job on them.

Thank you.

They are there listed as K1SWL Hilltopper  kit- look for the call sign first in the kit's title.

I remember in the very first sample issue of WorldRadio I received as a
Novice, the January 1984 issue, the Aerials column by Kurt N. Sterba was
taking this thing to task. Up to that point I only received QST and had
no prior knowledge of the device. His exposé proved beneficial for
sorting the wheat from the chaff for this new ham. Unfortunately, I see
little such straight talk these days.

RE: Dummy Load Contest 
Back in the 60's, some local Novices got on 80 using Dummy Loads before their Licenses came. One day, another Kid 12 miles away broke in on his Dummy Load.  I found out, that my 8.5 watt input could get Chicago 80 miles away using a 300 watt Bulb with a 100' extention Cord in between. My 2-3 watts out couldn't light it. 

Who remembers the 1:1 SWR Dipole sold around 1980 (MaxCon?) that was just a 50 ohm Resistor with a couple wires attached across the Load? 

7122 could be alive with Dummy Signals across the midwest. Dig out those Pig Rigs :) sure, there's a bunch of the in Drawers or on Shelves, quietly crying from being forgotten. I bet some could even be  easily Sold. 

Like Crafts and Wood Working? How about Lighthouses? Make a Lighthouse Lightbulb Antenna or Dummy Load. A bonus, the Light can light with Modulation Peaks or Key Taps. Use a Clear Bulb. Something like a 4-watt Night Light 💡 or 40-watt Appliance Bulb. 

Perhaps plan on Friday Night, Saturday Night, and Sunday.
