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
