According to the video creator this is a Begali bug. I was not able to find it in the www.i2rtf.com website.

But to clarify I own the Begali Magnetic Classic. I bought my keyer in 2004.

I was not able to find it on Pietro's website either. As a matter of fact I have never seen it must be a older design.

Hi guys, the Begali Intrepid is a very new bug; it is already mentioned in the rewiews area of this website, and it will be introduced at next Dayton hamfest.
I met Piero i2rtf in an italian ham exposition and I tried this bug: it is really excellent, very smoot and easy to control. Go to Dayton and try it!
Godspeed.

Hi all,
the bug is a complete head-start new project from Piero.
I had the privilege to try it in advance, and it is a very fine machine.
It can be fine-tuned to achieve a perfect 3:1 timing. Is *heavy* and stays firmly put on your desk.
The design is new, with a mechanically very long arm (two time the base), splitted in two parts.
There is a lower arm, which transmit momentum to the upper arm and a sophisticated damper design with anti-damper magnet on the other side, allowing a perfect adjuting of dot and mark space.
That's why in the video, the Bug sounds like a keyer.
I played with it on air and no one was able to hear the difference from a keyer.

Time to visit the Begali website guys. Several new keys showing today as well as the Intrepid. Time for me to dig into my cookie jar again.

Yes there a few new keys. Sorry for the previous information. I must be going blind.
