Can't speak for version III, but Version II is by far the best keyer I've
ever used. It runs for well over a year on one 9V battery, and is the
most "forgiving" and the smoothest keyer I've ever used, bar none. RF
bypassing on the Version II also needed a little help when I was using it
on a 2nd floor shack with an indoor dipole 6' away from the equipment.
Although this response doesn't address the III, it speaks well of the
lineage of these keyers...
