Who needs a key?
Interesting talent though A3 has no place down on the A1 portion of the band.
It's hard to mouth a pure tone...
It's easy to put a 100 Hz (or whatever) filter on the microphone. Maybe that's not what was done in the video but it can be done.
Steve kind of a past time of mine on CW is running QRO. Ill run 250/300W in an effort to accommodate those who have no choice but to run QRP or compromised antenna system...OR both. I have found it makes it much easier for those guy/gals to copy a stronger signal. I would guess that about 70% of my CQ's are returned buy such a station. One gent in FL. was in a nursing home with a wire dangling out the window running 5 watts. I have returns from gutters, awnings, loops on the ceilings, mobile antennas sitting on the kitchen table, you name it. Lots of fun for sure. Im strictly a rag chew OP so maybe we will cross paths lets hope. I been hanging out on 7056/7117 running some low speed CW while trying to relearn my bug. 73 Rich
