Re: The next Cal-QRP Club Kit



There are a lot of options out there for the K3NG based keyed (i built 5 different versions).
The one that will be available is using a mega 2560 mini.
Nothing revolutionary. 
There is a header for a PS2 keyboard but primary goal was to have something that can be used with a logger in contests.
It’s really a platform that you can use to add features and experiment - there are few digital and analog pins that are on headers to be able to add functions, and a support for 6 memory buttons.
I am slowly adding files on thingiverse - i don’t know that this will be the final repository.

I've built one designed by Josh Wood (w0odj) and sourced by Kees Talen (k5bcq)  that uses a Aruduino MEGA  2560. I just received a second PCB from Kees that he designed himself for take advantage of the smaller sized Arduino MEGA 2560 mini, but have yet to break the seal on that one yet. 

If you're interested, there is a forum for the K3NG keyer at and hosted by the primary software developer, Anthony Good (k3ng)

This is awesome! I looked at scratch building one a while back but decided my skills were not up to the task. A fabbed PCB and a parts list is doable, though! Thanks for all the hard work J.C. and Doug!
