Re: straight keys? (was Re: Speed Limit)

I'm still using mostly a straight key. Although I can't imagine using it in the
future as I get my code speed up. Anything over 12 WPM seems to be pushing it
for a straight key, or my wrist as well. :-) I have had good success using two
micro switches bolted together to make a set of poor man's paddles. The single
chip keyer chips sound exciting. Its probably about time I get serious and buy
one of the CMOS kits and update my sending skills. My current working keyer is
one of the tube type Hallicrafter models, poor man's keyer?
