The Iambic to Single Paddle kit is our version of a circuit from the October 2009 issue (page 61) of QST by W0NFU, Larry Winslow.

[Iambic to Single Paddle kit circuit board picture]
  • PIC based circuit
  • makes using an iambic keyer with a dual lever (iambic) paddle easier for those used to a single lever paddle
  • connects between your iambic paddle and your iambic keyer
  • only allows one paddle input to the keyer to be actuated at one time, just like a single lever paddle
  • toggle iambic operation back on with a touch of the optional, builder provided momentary switch
  • provided LED goes on with iambic operation and is normally off in regular single paddle mode
  • low power usage (1 uA or less when "sleeping"), LED goes off after 11 seconds of inactivity
  • board size: 1 x 1.5 inches
  • operates from 3 volt battery
  • price is $10 + shipping/handling
  • printed documents are NOT included, please print/view your own from the pdf files provided
