Would like to buy a Pico Keyer kit, but haven't been able to get to Hamgadgets website all weekend. Is it still open for business?

They should be open still, I ordered from them recently. I bought a Pico Keyer actually to help me practice without having to use my rig and a dummy load! Also the website is up for. Try this http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/hamgadgets.com

Wow, this is weird. I still can't get to their website, although I can go anywhere else on the web no problem. My browser just sits there trying until I eventually get an error (server timeout, not a 404 error). I'm using Firefox, but had the same results this weekend with IE, and also the same with two other machines on my home network, one of which is running Safari on an Apple iOS. So I guess it's my ISP's DNS server, or maybe something to do with my router. I'll check further in house and see what I can do... Anyway, thanks for the heads up.

No problems reaching this web site.
http://www.hamgadgets.com/about-us

PROBLEM is with your Home Computer Configuration, Home Network, OR Internet Service Provider (ISP).
SOME ISPs will inadvertently Block some web sites or IP addresses due to human error.

Check with your ISP.  They had me blocked from the ARRL email for quite some time until I found out that my ISP had it blocked.  No apologies....no explanation.

I found an excellent website that will check whether the problem is at your end or if the site is down for everyone:

Hey guys...  I moved the site to a new web server on Dec. 1.  Same data center, just a new server (and some new software).  DNS updates should have propagated and caches should have been flushed long ago, like by the 2nd or 3rd.  You may want to manually type in the URL...  http://www.hamgadgets.com.  Make sure it's not https:, that won't work any more. 

I plan to have the server off line either tonight or more likely tomorrow night for up to an hour for some cleanup maintenance, but will do that pretty late and try to keep it to a minimum.

But yeah, still here, still kickin'.  I just posted some new beta test firmware for the ID-O-Matic III and am working hard on the new MK-1 board...  it's alive!  (just not "done" yet.)

Hi Dale

TNX fer these little Pico-Keyers.
I have 2 of these little raggers.
They are over 5 yrs old now.
1 needed a new battery, the other is still on origenal battery.
Both are still going like new.

I can recommend these little things to every one .
I made a few nice specialy taylored and sized aluminium cabinets for them.
And now I can play footbal with them they will not be damaged.

I sometimes even forget the Pico keyer is there.
Just running parallel to my Vibroplex on my homebrew paddles.
Paddles and vibroplex to 1 port of the TS590 the single lever key to the built in el-bug of the TS590.
The other Pico-keyer in the portable set-up box for my second set of homebrew paddles and the FT857D for fieldday an vacation use.
