Island Keyer II
The Island Keyer II is a memory keyer kit available from Jackson Harbor Press. It is a full featured memory keyer with numerous options. It can use external speed, weight, and frequency adjust. I am just using the external pot speed adjust. Click on the link above for more info. Check out the great reviews on eHam.net.
I found one on Ebay that someone had assembled and put into a small enclosure with the six push-buttons mounted neatly on the top. Problem was that the builder powered it with a 9v. battery and one or both of the chips must have been damaged. A email to Chuck at Jackson Harbor Press had a new pair of chips on the way. The new chips fixed the problem and it is now safely powered by a pair of AA batteries.
If you're thinking about an inexpensive memory keyer, this is a simple build. Once you figure out how to switch memory banks and program the keyer options and individual memories, it is simple to operate and does a great job.
