    Just takes some practice. They say 10,000 hours for mastery, but just a few hundred to become proficient...
    CW is cool. Ham Radio is cool.

    I'm proud of the work I've done to learn cw over the 32 years I've proudly been a ham and having earned my ticket at a time when CW proficiency was part of getting a ticket.
    Nothing to show off in my video except the smooth ease of use, fabulous craftsmanship and bargain price for a very well built high quality MADE IN USA by hams, for hams, magna key.

    PS - Anyone can learn the code... I've heard all the excuses on why people can't or didn't learn (...but seeing 5 year old kids pass the test convinced me otherwise).
    you CAN do it. I'm even willing to teach you for free !

    Yep. its here now. And the 40 year old Bencher has been put away. The Magnakeyer is a great paddle!
    "Sorry, Bencher. We've been together many years but there's a new gal who makes me feel like you used to" :oops:

    I want to post a review of an excellent plexiglass cover that Walt,, WA8KBU, is fabricating for the Magnakeyer. I had inquired as to whether Andy knew of someone making covers and he did not. However, Walt got in touch with me to let me know that he could make a laser-cut plexiglass cover. We tried a couple of different designs and then Walt sent me a prototype for a cover that keeps the whole Magnakeyer covered but can slide back just enough to expose the paddles for use. It is beautifully made and is a great adjunct to protect the key, which itself is a work of art. I have attached photos of the cover in both of its useful positions to protect as well as use the Magnakeyer. As a disclaimer, I have no business interest in the construction or sale of the Magnakeyer or the cover that Walt is making. I just wanted to get the word about about these great ham-made products that are so beautifully make.
