Wow! This post is over 2 1/2 yrs old. Surprised to see new comments still coming in…

Here’s a new key that I just picked up not too long ago and have been really enjoying. Did I mention how darn small this thing is? :wink: Forgot who I saw posting a youtube video review of this key, but it looked so neat that I had to buy one! Impulse purchase - but glad I did. I like this little thing. Made by N6ARA.

Look here for details:

Although I’m still learning Morse code, I recently acquired this paddle made by my club as a 10th anniversary commemoration.

It is a single paddle (but in fact it works like a double paddle one) made with a PBC board equipped with pressure sensors in both sides. It is very light in weight and can optionally be ordered with a leg mounting support.

It doesn’t has any adjustent system, but it unnecesary because the touchness is very well calibrated. Do you want to swap dits and dahs fingers? No problem, you only must to flip de paddle. :wink:

Lots of good stuff in here, but I noticed the one I designed hadn’t been posted yet.

I’ve designed iambic paddles, a single-lever unit, and straight keys that have great feel and can be 3d printed and built for just a few dollars in easily attainable parts. If you have a 3d printer, give them a try.

Have fun building and operating!

I agree with DL3GJ. GM0EUL needs more love. Great build quality, small, lightweight, not expensive.

You still make the nicest Sota paddles. I definitely will buy a new sota paddle if you ever do another run or a new version.
