I need an electronic keyer so as to pound out morse code with my Bencher paddles.  I have an MFJ-407c which is broken and I was never really happy with it anyway.  Could you tell me about a really good keyer (maybe even with memory) that is easy to use and has quality output?  I'll be using the keyer with my Kenwood TS-940S tranceiver.

Even though the Icom IC-746 I use has a built in keyer, I have been using a CW Keyer from microHam for about 5 years now with excellent results.

You can find them at:

Check out the Idiom CMOS-4. Buy the kit, assemble it---and away you go---

I was about to suggest a PicoKeyer, but it's the N0XAS keyer previously referenced.  

It's surely the most "bang-for-buck".

The PIK keyer at http://www.vk1od.net/module/pik/pik.htm is an emulation of the AccuKeyer behaviour (including the auto space facility).

The circuit is simple, and the firmware is available for free download.
