This item is fully assembled.
This is a key-paddle for Morse communication using current shortwave transceiver (It does not include the elect-key circuit, just the key-pad only).
Most of (almost 100%, except for kit-made transceiver) current shortwave (and also V/U transceiver supporting SSB/CW) have an electric keyer as a built-in function. For utilizing this function, we need a "key paddle". Before I made this, I briefly searched on the net, but most were more than $100 and close or above $200. The "keypaddle" is a simple switch and I thought I could make it by 3D-printing and I did!
I myself, am really a Morse beginner (the end of Oct 2019, I got FCC Extra). I want to have a key-pad for learning and training Morse code, so I made this.
Japanese traditional ceramic base (Mino-ware)
Super low price (compared to most of key-pad in the world), good for a beginner like me.
3.5 mm stereo jack is set for left pad for dot, right pad for dash. If reverse preferred, just re-soldering is enough for it. (I believe an amateur radio operator can do it.)
Please peel thin vinyl on the rubber surface before usage.
Precaution before ordering: As shown in the attached image, on the surface of "mino-ware" base, it has several scratches (because this ceramic was not made for this purpose). It does not have any effect on the keypad function, but please consider before ordering.
