Jerry

I use an Island Keyer II and can't say enough good things about it.

Mine uses only the speed pot and I power it with 2 penlight batteries which last over a year even tho I never turn it off.

I do no extra RF filtering or suppression as and I operate running 800 watts sometimes.

Great project - works great.

Good luck - 73

I decided to use the Island Keyer II because it's
board allows me to use Pots for speed, tone etc
as well as momentary switches for jumping around
in the menu's.

I'm also using a small audio amp and speaker for
sidetone.

All this will go in a nice metal enclosure.

I was wondering if I need to rig up some kind of
a choke on the keying line to keep RF out of the

Not sure it it's needed or what I would use so thought

Anyone have a favorite method of accomplishing this?

Hello Jerry, when I use a 486 computer's printer port to key 100 watts on HF, I connect a 1000 pf capacitor from the "hot" wire to ground. On VHF, use a 100 pf and on UHF use about 33 pf. These rough have always worked for me.....Gary.....K5QNM.

Re: antenna issue found

Cliff Fox (KU4GW)
 

I saw 2 guys do that at ARRL Field Day one year and bring up the local 2 meter repeater for a short QSO off of a small tree. Pretty wild!

One of the ham mags had a article about using a tree as a vertical. Don't
remember the issue or what the conclusion was. Must not have been good or
guys would be using it for portable work! 72 Geo/W2BPI

- I think the answer here might be, "Yes - but..." Even at QRP power
levels, there can be varying amounts of interplay depending on where the tree is
touching the antenna along the voltage/current (impedance) profile of the
antenna. The affect can also be influenced with how wet or dry is the bark
of the tree. There was an article years ago about the US Military using
living trees as vertical antennas... not overwhelming results if I remember
correctly....

My antenna wires touch tree limbs all the time. That shouldn't cause
