TenTec KR-2 Paddles
The paddles are a single lever paddle, like is in the KR-5
keyer. They are housed in a nice eggshell white and wood
grain cabinet. There is also a separate button on top that
can be used as a straight key, or to tune up a rig or
antenna tuner. $40

Buy the paddles with one of the keyers below, and take $10
off of the pair.

MFJ 484 C "GrandMaster" Keyer with Memories
This keyer has a built in sidetone, with volume and tone
adjustable on the front panel.  Speed and weighting are
also adjustable from the front panel.
It has 4 large memories. You may install a 9 volt battery
to preserve memory contents during a power failure. It can
be powered by either a 9 Volt battery, a 9 V DC wall wart,
or your station 12 V DC power supply.
It is a nice eggshell white and wood grain enclosure that
matches the TenTec KR-2 paddle.  $55

Palomar Engineers IC Keyer
This keyer includes a sidetone with speaker built in. It
also will operate in either full automatic mode (like most
keyers), or in semiautomatic mode (like a bug). The 9 Volt
battery is external, so it can be changed easily. This one
works great. $45

Cable for paddles
This cable is about 3 feet long, and has 1/4 inch stereo
connector on the end, like used by most rigs. It looks
great. $8
As above, but 1/8 inch plug. $8

Cable for straight key
Similar to cable for paddles, but has a mono 1/4 inch
phone plug on it, as is used with a straight key. $5
As above, but 1/8 inch plug. $5

"Switcher / 25" 25 amp switching power supply
This is a 25 amp switching power supply in a case that
matches the early Omni series case, with the metal bezel
around it. It is in a case that is the same size as a 243
remote VFO. It has an ammeter on the front, along with
Switch, TenTec logo, and output bulb. The front panel
basically looks like a 280 power supply with a metal bezel,
but says "Switcher/25" on it. It is very quiet, and well
shielded, and does not produce any electrical noise that
I could find. $150

Prices do not include shipping from Florida.
