Best wishes on new arrival. What a relief! Looks like a future Op not a lab assistant. The Morse code will make great sense in the background of the nursery.

Not complaining, just a clarification. There are still some of us in the rural areas without a cost effective option for unlimited internet. I am only 15 minutes outside of the small city that is the hub for the area, but the phone lines here are old copper that doesn't support DSL, they barely support phone calls. Wireless providers have some offers but most are not unlimited. The only one that is has little towers as head ends that are only 68-80' high. To get service past the trees to get 2km to the nearest tower I would require an 80' tower here. They will not climb a tower unless they supply and install it at over $6000. My only option here is a cell plan at $60 that is 4G to 10 gigs then it throttles to 500k after that. It is a decent deal and we use the phone as a hot spot for the computer. I wish we had decent internet so we could drop the $100 TV satellite that has very limited programming and go to a streaming service. Oh well, maybe someday......I still like living in the country way more than in town, I'll put up with it.

Sorry, but this ENTIRE THREAD was about the vagaries of language. It was never about technical issues of one of Hans' excellent radios (which I love). It was always, from the first post, about the weirdness of languages and dialects.

So there was no "hijacking" of the thread. It started out on course for language weirdness, and so far, is still on that course. Having read the posts now between the one I just replied to and the end, sure, if everyone thinks we've exhausted the topic, and want to let Hans' reflector get back to usual business, that's fine with me. But you could just push the "next" button on your mail reader, you know. The Internet HAS actually improved enough that "bandwidth" is no longer an issue unless you're reading the list on a phone via a cell data plan, in which case I suggest you wait on reading your email until you get to an open WiFi, or back to your computer with broadband. It's not MY fault that you're using cell data for this!

Back when you only got so much bandwidth for an exorbitant ISP price, keeping emails short and to the point made sense. Now, we toss GIGABYTES around without thinking every time we watch a Youtube video, so don't blow smoke up my skirt with this "bandwidth" nonsense. It hasn't been a good argument for over a decade at this point! Just click "next" and be done with it.

Oh, the stories I could tell... I'll keep this one short. I grew up on Long Island. We used to go to the seashore at Jones Beach a lot in the summer. When I was in the band at my grade school, there weren't enough of us to have our own full band practice, so we would go over to another grade school about a half mile away and practice together. That was on Shaw Avenue.

It was normal to go to the "Sea Shaw" when going to the beach, but that grade school was on "Shore Avenue" -- if going by pronunciations alone.

Re: learning Iambic or Straight Keying first?

Hi Peter,

Thanks, I think we're all discussing creating our own, but your mini paddles look very similar to something I was looking to design.  I have a little budget 3D printer (MP Select Mini v1) that has suited me well for a couple of years so will likely print my own, but they do look like a simple and inexpensive option.

Gwen, that looks almost too simple! I'll have to take a crack at this, maybe with some similar items I can gather around the house for a PoC and then making one that looks as nice as yours. To echo Michael's question, do you have a keyer circuit inside the project enclosure as well, or does it interface directly with the radio you're using?

Jon, KC3PDS
