Finally found the current Te Ne Ke here:


I agree this is much different than the one I got from Boyd.

Knobs take up space, rise the profile of the device and can get snagged on stuff. But they have advantages like easy and intuitive to use. It’s all about trade offs.

Why are rotary adjustments not well suited?  I've often wondered about this feature.

Thank you. Yes that name rings a bell. It is tiny. I split the cork and put 3/4" of the key in and wired it shut. That made a useable handle. My protective case is a pill bottle with a small hole in the bottom. I threaded the cord through, from inside to outside. With the cap on, it has done the job.

The Te-Ne-Ke is a fantastic little device. I have two of them, one in my shack, on a weighted base, and one in my go-box for my portable station. It's so compact and solid!

In my case - I was not trying to build any paddle - but reproduce as much as possible the palm design - and adapt it for 3D print. I found that the main issue is around the reliability of contacts and having the right weight on paddle arms - this is why I use PCB with gold plating and a gold plated washer. I need to post the latest details.

I wish palm would continue to make their keys - this is also why I did not want to have commercial use of my files.

I love the simplicity and accuracy of the movement. We did a quick test with Dan OK1HRA, we replaced the two springs with two rectangular magnets and the movement seems to be very nice.  The paddles would need a bit of redesign for the magnets as the magnets need to be closer, and there are no adjustment screws, but the general idea is excellent.

Not wanting to highjack the thread, but here is the paddle that travels with my ATS3B. I probably got this about 10 years ago. The guy who made these had a house fire, but he salvaged this one only. I cannot remember his name. It is labeled Micro.

I’m thinking around $75. Steve

 

Steven, if you were to put a 'ballpark' price on the kit what would the range be?

Thanks for all your work in the QRP kit building space.

Re: Yet Another Single Band Transceiver (YASBT)

Morse is the only mode we need  👍👍


Re: Yet Another Single Band Transceiver (YASBT)

That’s a lot easier said then done.  This is a simple rig which does only one digital mode – Morse code.

How about an interface to a smart phone and let the phone processor do the decoding (and be the keyboard)?

Sending PSK31 isn’t too hard to do, decoding it is a trick to do with a simple, low speed processor.

wish the digital screen I wonder if there is a possiblity of psk31 capability?  Maybe thru bluetooth and external keyboard?  I never did get the psk31 upgrade for my ATS-4b.
