This is huge fun – using the KWS-1 running about 550 watts ( I could go as high as 700 watts). With a contest on the air – what a great time to test the rig – last weekend it was like pulling hens teeth just calling CQ.
Keyer and N3ZN paddle
I jury rigged a keyer and one of my favorite paddles so I can send at the speed that I want to. I have come to learn that all the nostalgia in the world can’t get me to use an old keyer (like the TO Keyer) or a Bug if my sending is crap. This is where “retro” and “living history” takes a back seat in my world.
