Now that SS is over with and my hand is sore from not using Writelog to generate
CW for me, I have a question.

It seems simple enough to connect Writelog (using a COM port) to my FT-817's
keyer input, but how can I also make use of my keyer paddles.  Do I need an
external keyer to do this?  As best I can tell, Writelog expects the keyer input
to be in "straight key mode".  My iambic keyer paddles normally connect to my 
with the keyer input in "internal keyer mode".  How do you hotshot contesters do
this?  Do you use an external keyer?
