Tired of sending Morse code with a straight key? It’s fun for a while. But making code sound good and easy to copy is tedious, hard work!

Vectronics VEC-204 electronic code keyer and paddle combination is ideal for sending great-sounding code. By squeezing, you can automatically generate perfect code with almost no effort.

If you press the dot paddle before a dash completes, Vectronics SmartDotDash will finish the dash, make a space and then the dot!

It’s so forgiving you can concentrate on enjoying your QSO, not on critical timing. For beginners, type A keying makes sending code easy – nothing else is sent when the dot or dash being sent is complete.

Type B keying makes it even easier to produce certain characters such as a period or letter C. If you release the paddle while a dot or dash is being sent, the dot or dash completes and an opposite element is sent.

Vectronics weight control lets you lengthen or shorten dots or dashes. it compensates your transmitter for a proper 1 : 3 ratio.

Here’s a more exciting use! Adjust your dot/dash lengths to sound distinctive. Rare DX can easily pick you out of a pile-up.
