Well - if I ever supported an external keyer - be assured that the
current method of keying would still be supported.  The MM3 stuff
and the current method co-existed for a number of years.

I would need to know more about the MFJ - like did they do a good
job with PTT support?  Can I tell when CW is still being sent?  Can
I quickly abort a message being sent?  These were little details that
I was able to get implemented into the MM3 because I was helping them
beta test the unit.  I am skeptical that MFJ has addressed these
