Hi CW fellows

I am training a lot to be a qrq op, and Now just beyond 40 wpm in sending.

I am used to use dit and dah memory keyer iambic b , but do you Think it Will harm me When getting higher in speed.

Have heard that dit and dah memory is not good for qrq - what do you Think ?

Best regards

Well... just abt two weeks ago I made an accu-keyer (old construtcion but I liked that timing) and... converted to its iambic B. The impossible became possible. I did it, thanks God! because I see it has much more capabilities. Sometimes there was a problem with some leters and words using iambic A Curtis (MFJ-401B) in 50 and above so I was quite desperated..

Super ... Yesterday i did a accu keyer with touch for qrq ...arduino 328 and lcm 1043 ...it is Working very good for qrq CW...get the touch schema from sp9dba dick and did combine with arduino...

Look after me on 7022 or 3552 khz, so we Can go qrq with our accu keyers..

Hi Jalmar,

I know Dick's great touch paddles schematic but I made similar to that one: "http://www.m0ukd.com/homebrew/capacitive-cw-touch-key-circuits". Just added trimers to controle sensitivity and changed C1, C2 values. It works great up to abt 40-45 wpm but above it it's a little uncomfortable to me. But... I've got a N3ZN great magnetic paddles and I'm really happy with it.

Will look after You on qrg, see You :)

Wow, men.. More than a week ago I made a Nanokeyer with its super cmos keyer timing and this is it!

And this keyer is a great machine. Also work with all winkey supported programs if You wish.

You know it for shure but a link is http://blog.radioartisan.com/arduino-cw-keyer/

And I came back to my touch padles as well.. (however N3ZN are still great ones!!)

I never used a dit/dash memory - did never learned it and got up to 60 WpM with my Bencher and a simple HighSpeedElectronic. Never used a keyboard for it is not a real CW feeling :) But looking to the videos it seems a real phantastic area for doing again QRQ - today I have to much to do with YL and QRL :(
