i now even call the dx with the paddle and quite often reply with report the same way but when your calling for a 30 mins to an hour the memory keyer is the most consistent. i used to have the memories  in a program with  my name is ... .. etc
then i started practicing sending that in my long grind to learn cw and can quite happily sent that myself i just lack confidence in sending cw although it appears to be ok and i'm confident in most other parts of my life.

I use an MFJ-495 Memory Keyer which has 4 sets of 8 entries.  I set up each set for different types of operation. My first set is for general rag chewing with my call - name - QTH - etc My second set is for working 6 Meters with my call, my Grid, my QTH, my name and a few different RST's. The third is for contests and it changes according to the contest while the fourth only has my call and "5NN TU" for quick pile-ups.

I find the MFJ-493 Super Menu Driven Memory Keyer to have a lot of good features including some excellent practice copy modes "FCC Exam Simulator" and an interactive "QSO Simulator".  It also allows you to easily add Farnsworth spacing to code it sends from its 8 memories.

They are no longer sold new, but you can find them used on famous auction sites and Hamfests.
