The K42 is the Swiss Army knife of CW keyers, it will provide many hours of CW operation and enjoyment.
CW keyboard interface, CW reader, iambic paddle keyer, LCD display, and optically isolated keying outputs
are all presented in one compact box.
In addition, the K42 will operate many different modes including
QRSS, HSCW, and conventional CW up to 140 WPM.
CW reader (CWR) circuitry is included on the K42 board. It accepts audio from a receiver, then filters,
demodulates, and decodes CW characters which are then displayed on the LCD. The CWR provides an
LED bar display that is used to tune in CW stations quickly and accurately
