The weight on the Omni VI internal keyer is adjustable. As I remember,
you press sidetone, then CW, and use the arrows to change the value. I
liked it all the way up, 1.30.
For the AEA, use a keying interface between the keyer and the radio like
the Jackson Harbor Press Keyall -
Great deal for $13 + shipping.
