Over the Thanksgiving holiday, my dad gave me a great gift. He handed me the KD1JV Code Trainer from QRPGuys. I was able to solder it up in about 30 minutes and most of that time was spent finding a capacitor that found its way into the minijack. With that mystery solved, my favorite little girl provided her expert guidance and supervision over the construction. Her efforts were not wasted as it worked the first time!
Dad also gave me a J key mounted to one serious piece of metal. It’s good stuff and hopefully I will get some practice in here and there. There are apps for my mobile OS of choice, but the key is a lot more fun.
