Ladies and Gentlemen, I know that WriteLog and N1MM (ofwhich I use) all have 
a DVK system built into them. What I was investigating was if someone had 
designed a PIC based voice keyer for use when a computer was either 
unavaialable or unwanted such as when I go out to a mountaintop in my car 
whereas I log on paper and I don't have a laptop to use.

Was just thinking about something simple for VHF contesting that wiuld run 
on a 9volt battery has on message with repeat that would work inline with 
the factory microphone so I could hit one button and it would repeat "cq 
contest this is k8jwt" every 5 seconds till I turn it off to reply to 
someone or the battery died.

Basically I was looking at a cheap simple device.
