I’ve been reading a thread lately in the LICW Google group and compiled this list of favored CW practice oscillators. I personally have struggled with building simple oscillators wanting more than what simple circuits can deliver. I have recently ordered a Morserino 2 which appears to be a great tool to use with students and also a great testing device for the shop when I finish a key and want to make sure it works correctly without actually hooking it up to my radio in the shack. —Steve—
Here’s the list:
- QRPGuys Code Trainer
- HamGadgets Ultra PicoKeyer v24
- North Fulton Amatuer Radio League CPO
- Phoenix Kits: https://www.phoenixkitsonline.co.uk/
- CW Morse https:/cwmorse.us
- K1EL CPO: https://www.hamcrafters2.com/CPOX.html
- 4 State QRP CPO: http://www.4sqrp.com/ek3.php
- Begali Code Machine: The top of the mountain when it comes to CPO’s: http://www.i2rtf.com/cw-machine.html
Will you be selling your new ebony finger piece to current owners of your key ?
Well, I haven’t thought of it. The new finger pieces are actually made from Bubinga. That’s a very hard wood with a very nice warm color and interesting patterns. I would consider making replacement finger pieces with my new shape. What do you think would be fair for a price? It takes me about an hour to make a pair. Steve
You have a link to ‘www.cwmorse.com’ that fails. Drop the ‘www.’ from the front and that works just fine.
Ok, thanks. 73
