Good Evening everyone,

 Quick question does anyone know how to make an interface to do cw and other stuff? I run a TS-2000 and I have cat figured out I just need an interface now for cw. I have no keyer.

73,

The TS-2000 has a keyer built in.  However, what I think you are asking for is the interface to have the computer key the radio.  You can get an inexpensive interface from the N3FJP web site.  These interfaces go from a serial port on your computer to the jack on the radio for a straight key NOT the jack for the built in keyer.  The built in keyer is for use with paddles.

Yes they can be built rather easily. Depends on what
options you want. Quite a number of hams build their
own to suit there needs. If you're not into building
there are quite a number of commerically available
interfaces for most radios, even vintage gear. It
all depends on what you want.

I built my own for my FT-857D and it works great for
CAT and any digital mode except CW. I didn't include
the CW keying opto isolator but that's soon to change.

Merry Christmas and 73's

If you have CAT working, you can direct your TS-2000 to transmit CW using the KY CAT command; no additional interface is needed.
