What he said! <grin>
I've been using the Super CMOS III keyer (built in to my WBL paddle)
for half a dozen years and also can't recommend one highly enough. I'm
using it with the Omni VI, but I can't see why it wouldn't work with the
Orion or any other modern rig.
If the keyer has a "fault", it's too many options: emulates 10 different
keyers, contest serial numbers, multiple messages, message "nesting",
compensation for transmitter character shortening, etc, etc.
Try it. I think you will really enjoy it.
