How can I connect the Brass Racer to my rig? The TS-440 doesnt have an internal Iambic keyer circuit? If not where can I get one? Thanks

External iambic keyers are available all over the place.  Logikey is an advertiser here on eHam.net, and makes very good ones, available fully assembled or in kit form.  MFJ's keyers work fine, too.  Expect to pay $40-$50 for a used one, or $80-$120 for something new and feature-rich.

Of course, you can homebrew a keyer entirely, too!  I think MFJ bought the rights to the Curtis ASIC (iambic keyer on a single chip) and sells them, for folks who want to build their own from scratch.

You have the option of updating your Brass Racer to an EK-1 model (built into base of your Vibroplex) - contact Vibroplex for details.

Another popular solution would be the new NorCal keyer kit at $ 15
