Great idea (and kudos to your generous offer to Tess). [/quote]
Yes. Lucky Tess. Thank you GIL - address sent. Maybe come January I can pay you for it.

Question about the pic above --- Are those paddles?

You already have.

The paddles are not those. They are MFJ paddles, which unfortunately are not good, but they will show you how paddles work. The code oscillator though is great.
You can download the manual here under "Documents." http://k1el.tripod.com/K12.html
It can be used with other paddles of course.

Gil.

I appologize ahead of time for being a pest. That pic on the link is not something I understand. It is hard to visulize actually using it. Maybe it will all make more sense once I have it in my hand. I will be writing back with more questions.

BTW, thank you so very much for wishing to share some equipt with me. Heart touching. I hope it does not make me want to pull my hair out.


About the top part/piece pictured on the link. It sort of reminded me of the chime selector on the drive motion detector. The up and down  arms work to create a particular sytle of sound. Maybe there is no association between them, but reminded of it.

I am looking forward to the oscillator! Thanks again.
Now, to get of the computer and back one of the 21 items on the to-do list today.

A bit of a description can be found here

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vibroplex

basically a mechanical keyer to automatically generates dit's when the lever is pressed in one direction, dah's when pressed from the other.  No need for electronics to generate the code. 

MFJ, or other, paddles combined with an electronic keyer simulate this with circuitry.

 ::)Thank you underhill. "Bug" is finally fully understood.
I love the size of those items/bugs. Not too big. Easy to pickup and run. I will need to start thinking of a station to practice. I have two options that might work once unburied.

Sort of exciting. bTW, do people work the bug from their lap? I use a keyboard near my knees due to comfort/pain managment. The reaching up near table level does not work very well.

My main question is, Does it have to be level or on a flat surface?
