I write the "Morseman" column in the NZART (New Zealand)
Ham journal "Break-In". Recently, ZLs have been contacting
me to find out where they can buy keyer paddles. I found out,
to my surprise, that neither Bencher nor Vibroplex have agents
in New Zealand. We have to import. Before advising people,
I'd like some advice:
1. What paddles are you all using now? How do you like them?
2. I have a cherished Brown Brothers iambic paddle I love, bought in
the USA in 1977. I hear now that they are out of business. Is this
I suspect, from comments I hear, that a number of others might
like to read comments on paddles as well.
Incidentally, is everybody aware of the excellent small PIC-based
keyers made by Steve, K1EL? See
