Look at array solutions site by wx0b.He shells the Super Combo Keyer.
THis is a keyer build by zs4tx .IT's doing CW/Voice and have a build in
compressor.You can control 2radios ,or let control the pc contest software
control them.I'm using one on my ft1000mp and I don't use the compressor
because its overdriving fairly.The build in cwkeyer is a CMOS KEYER III
Infact i'm reading just in the manual on page 6 there is a 5vpull up pin
onthe microphone socket for use with a electrect condenser microphone.
BTW anyone out there using this keyer let us know ....
merry christmas-happy newyear
