Hi Duane! Yep, if I had an external keyer, I _could_ use the amp 
QSK- however, my Corsair II has a built-in keyer, and keying 
through the amp would render it useless! That's where the problem 
lies :-( . Perhaps Ten Tec could come up with a keyer circuit 
that could be retrofitted to my Centurion amp? Then I could use 
the QSK circuit to key the Corsair via the "straight-key" method...
