Bill & the TenTec Gang -

While we're on the subject of keyers for SKN you might try the PopTop Keyer by
N5RLJ.  It is an interesting design based on the top of a Snapple bottle.  Turns
out that the safety button that pops up to indicate the original seal is broken
makes a pretty good keying device.  Hold in one hand and key away to heart's
content.  Contact N5RLJ for detailed plans -- the standard disclaimer applies
that I own no stock in Dave's PopTop Keyer company!

Look for NO5W in SKN/Chuck
