Does anyone have any info on the Ten-Tec 1553 Electronic Keyer?
I bought a very nicely built one yesterday at a hamfest and would
appreciate instructions, tips, any info.
Tnx, Bob KB0KXL

The only thing I know is that it's not for iambic operation.

Description:
A classic circuit and a nice price make this a great project for beginners or for building into extra rigs. Includes speed control, weight control (rarely offered in "simple" CMOS circuits) and sidetone pitch control. A lot of keyer for the price, it features self-completing dits and dahs for standard single-lever keyer paddles. While not designed for iambic operation, the price and reliability make the 1553 a very nice introduction to electronic CW keying.

Thanks, Guys, I emailed the service dept. and hopefully they'll be able to give me some more info. In particular, there is a small black button on the front panel that I don't have a clue what it is for....
