Not bad for a small key.  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Spacing is a little wide, but other than that it's not too bad. After I dropped in my own keyer chip (PicoKeyer, www.hamgadgets.com) to replace the stock one, I was much happier with it. I did have to go find a 2.5mm plug for the output jack, so there's Yet Another Adapter Cable around, but as I only use this one for portable operation it's not a big deal. The only thing I'd ask for is maybe a little adjustment room between the posts. I suppose a little work with a rat-tail file will fix that!

Great for portable operation.  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I bought my MK65 in May, 2002. I experienced very good results with my QRP rig, while using the MK65 during my last camping trip.

The MK65 works great for mobile operation in combination with the MK-16 Velcro leg stap. The built in TIC keyer and two 50 character memories are really a nice combination for calling CQ and sending basic information while mobile.
