Been bouncing between key and paddles on a IC-7410. I like the way the ICOM handles it. Straight key on back and paddles on front. Set speed knob on front to something comfortable. I can switch between the two without touching the radio. I had been using a Logitek partly because it is a keyer that is well known for being low error. I am happy to report the keying software in the IC-7410 is as good. The only thing missing is the radio does not indicate keyer speed, which is not a problem for me.
