Lousy Keyer!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Using and adjusting this keyer was an exercise in frustration! I returned it after a few days of messing with it. Even after extensive internal adjustments (as described in the manual), sending seemed very tedious and unatural, given this keyer's propensity to add unwanted time delay to the sending process. I don't know if this is a design flaw, or some kind of unit defect. I have had NO problems with the built in electronic keyers on my IC-756 and IC-718, but this external keyer (which I bought to key my IC-725) failed to deliver in a big way! MFJ really needs to user test their products more comprehensively before selling them. DISSAPOINTED.
