Thanks Dave for that tidbit of information.

BUT, my Easy Keyer III doesn't like any straight key...I've tried all the different key settings...paddle, bug, straight and even reversed the paddles in the different settings but mine will not allow me to send much faster that 10 WPM...it seems the dits aren't sharp/crisp enough and if sent too fast they tend to blend into dahs...I tried adjusting the speed but it seems that part is deactivated whenever the keyer is set to Straight Key...

If someone has a remedy for this I'd love to be able to use it as described in the previous email.

Thanks, 72s

Neat little keyer.

So, if you are looking for a side tone AND a keyer for the BJ try the EZ Keyer III. I think you will be satisfied. The built in key in the BJ is "cute" but not comfortable to use and without the side tone how do I know how many mistakes I am making?

Today, W5RZ and I had a 2xPixie QSO, both running 1/2W and about 185 miles apart.  So we both had to dig the other's signal out of the mud with compromised reception.

I can attest to the fact that a fall from a 55' foot tower hurts like heck.

I can show you the surgery scars to prove it (from 1983).
Lucky I was just a young pup back then or I wouldn't have made it.

Just worked KC3RN/QRP on 7.050 with Sea Sprite (Pixie) @ 1/2 W, about 1100 miles.   I answered his CQ.  7.118 has been unfruitful as has been calling CQ with 1/2W.  H&P works better for me.

Burned my fingers on the reverse polarity IRF510. Rig was drawing 2.4 amps! Replaced it with junk box spare and all ok. Must be a QC issue with supplier.

Gentlemen,
In order to decode these messages, you must first download the Message Encryption Techniques for Field Agents from the Bayou Jumper Yahoo group files section, read and understand it or you'll never get it.  

If you can't access that file, you're going to be lost unless you download and install Mike Aiello N2HTT's Python program - _rebecca.zip from the files section as well and either get Python running on Windows (it's out there and runs quite well on the Windows platform) or if you're running Linux, you should already be familiar with the Python language and it may be even easier.  All the messages we are generating so far are using the Poem Code "Mary had a little lamb" as spelled out in the Encryption Techniques PDF file and unless a different poem is specified, that will always be the key generator.

Re: EZ Keyer III

Sam Neal
 

Hello David,

I also have a hearing problem and over the years I have been turning the
volume ever higher. I solved the problem by feeding the output from my Icom
756PROII through a Clear Speech DSP speaker - and then I feed it into a 50
Watt tube type Peavy guitar amplifier. The side-tone is still lacking.

I use a Pal-Star keyer. It can key three rigs at the same time if you should
want to. I use the solid state keyer output to key an old MFJ code practice
oscillator which is fed into a different input on the Peavy amplifier, leaving
two relay keyed outputs to key different tube rigs, one of which is in
stand-by position..

To say that the audio is full is an understatement. Of course, it is never ran
at full output - just a comfortable listening level.

73,

Sam Neal N5AF

Subject: [4sqrp] EZ Keyer III

Some have been known to say that I am losing my hearing (depends on who you
ask). Anyway, I got my EZ Keyer III out to tinker with and maybe program some
of the files to use with my Bayou Jumper, and also see if it would function as
a side tone. At first I thought the battery was dead but with more tinkering
and holding it up to my ear I could hear that the little piezo speaker was
putting out sound..... But not much. My wife could hear it up stairs and
wondered what the racket was.

Rest of story: today I received the larger Piezo speaker from DigiKey, the
one mentioned in the build instructions. Well, now I have a keyer I can hear!
There is a volume control inside the keyer but I have it turned up as high as
it will go. Now to replace the IRF510 in the voltage reverse protection
circuit and get back on the air. Neat little keyer.

So, if you are looking for a side tone AND a keyer for the BJ try the EZ Keyer
III. I think you will be satisfied. The built in key in the BJ is "cute" but
not comfortable to use and without the side tone how do I know how many
mistakes I am making?

Re: Long Test Message for you to play with

Messages can be over 100 characters.  This is an exercise in how to handle columns that are longer than 5 characters The  short columns were covered in Mark's first message.  The basic rules apply.  The number of columns = the number of letters in the decoded indicator group words. The number of total squares = the number of characters in the message. When laying out the squares,  they go under each numbered letter in the key line.  When you get to the end of the key line, start another line of squares.  Keep adding rows of squares using that format until you have squares enough to hold all the characters in the message.  If the last horizontal row of squares contains fewer squares than the line above, blank out the unused squares in that row.  The columns above those blank squares will be shorter than the others.

Column 1 gets group 1 and however many characters are in group 2 that will fit.  If more than group 2 fits, keep going with group 3.  If less than group 2, carry the leftover characters into the column numbered 3 and so on.  That's how you handle big messages.  The only reason for the approximately 100 character limit was to make it difficult for a cryptanalyst to break the message.  Since we aren't really worried about that, the 100 char. limit is only for ease of decoding.  I made this one harder as a training exercise to see if anyone would tackle it and come up with a solution.
