Since the Island Keyer is a board only kit, this gives the customer the opportunity to creatively packagage their keyer - here are some nicely constructed examples of the Island Keyer:
Bill Sepulveda, K5LN, sent 4 pictures of his Island Keyer keyertop.jpg (14k), keytopa.jpg (20k), keyerfnt.jpg (13k), keyerend.jpg (12k) - Bill used an enclosure (with a 9V battery compartment) and parts from Radio Shack to complete his keyer. He used Powerpoint software to generate the labeling.
