[CQ-Contest] RADIOS

My favorite radio is still my old (1989 vintage) Kenwood TS-950SD.  And last
time I checked, it still holds a few world records.

Yes, the 1000D and MP's I've used have been fine.  Are they better than my
950?  Maybe, maybe not.

One thing I like about my 950, it has been FLAWLESS, never a problem in all
these dozen years.  Sometimes it just sits on Ascension Island, untouched
for a year or more, yet has never failed to fire-up or failed during a 48
hour contest. Amazing.

Other newer radios may have more bells and whistles, but not sure I would
use them all anyway.

NEW SUBJECT:  Does anyone still make voice keyers?  I'm anxiously awaiting
W9XT's latest for my notebook computer; but in the meantime urgently need
one for next month.  Help anyone?
