The EK160 Electronic Keyer / Paddle is a commercial grade electronic keyer with a precision dual paddle built in.
Terminals are provided for connecting a paddle and/or bug or straight key (to use the keyer as an oscillator and to buffer the keying of a transmitter via the relay). The keyer itself will function in “bug” (semi-automatic) mode at the flip of the front panel switch.
Speed setting is done via a front-panel control which is calibrated in characters per minute (5cpm = 1wpm, approximately ).
The adjustable paddles are switch-reversable for left-handed operators, and the contact spacing is easily adjusted on the front panel. Iambic keying features full dot and dash memories. The weighting (“code ratio” can be adjusted from 1:3 to about 1:4. There’s a built in monitor with volume control on the front panel and pitch control on the back, and a jack for headphones or external speaker (8 Ohms, 300mW).
Built-in high-speed reed relay supports negative-keyed rigs with up to 280VDC and 2A on the key line, or use JFET keying for transistor-keyed +V rigs and save wear and tear on the relay..
Speed range: 6-50wp,
Keying circuit: reed relay or JFET
Power Source: 110VAC o r 220VAC
Size/Weight: 9x4x2.5in, 2 Lbs, 12 Oz.
Handmade CW keys by RA1AOM CW FOREVER !
You must have at times,
Thought into the past,
Where some things go out
While others last
What comes to my mind is
The old Morse code,
That has weathered the storms
