Gary, that will work fine, nothing to worry about for Winkey and a modern SS radio.  See you on FD!

I'm trying to get a TS940S up on CW for the local ham club field day this weekend.? The rig has no internal keyer so I want to hook my winkey up to it.? ?We'll not be interfacing any software to the rig so this will be just for providing a keyer for cw.
The TS940 manual says to make sure that the keyer jack has a positive polarity at the tip of the jack and shows a diagram indicating a +14 at the tip.? ?Should I be able to use my winkey as is, with the plug wired for use with my elecraft K3?
I'm tempted to just give it a whirl but the club is pretty proud of the ts940s and I really don't want to damage anything.? When I measure the voltage between tip and base it gives me a -.3 between tip and base when keying.
Thanks for any advice.
