The LogiTALKER is a stand-alone voice keyer that goes between your radio and your microphone. It uses your regular microphone to record up to four messages, to be played back at the touch of a button. It’s the simple, easy-to-use, inexpensive way to save your voice in a contest! One message can be set to auto-repeat, which is perfect for running stations, or as a voice beacon, or for calling CQ automatically as a band opens.
The LogiTALKER works with just about any microphone, dynamic or condenser, that has an eight-pin round plug or an eight-pin modular plug. It can be reconfigured for a different brand of radio by reconfiguring jumpers, so your LogiTALKER isn’t tied to just one radio.
Can be easily configured for nearly any modern microphone or radio
Message #1 can be configured to repeat at any interval from 2 seconds to 266 seconds, or the repeat can be switched off
