The thought has often crossed my mind that every QRP rig oughta have a
little pushbutton switch labeled "KEY" on the front panel just for these
occassions. At least this way you could whomp out an 8 wpm QSO in a
DIRE EMERGENCY -- like working the fox or W8MVN or something.

Have a good weekend all,
