Great Program EASY to use  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Got this little program by watching a Youtube video about 10 meter beacons. This software works perfect for that. If you already have your rig and computer connected it is very easy to connect right in the loop and go. Works perfect for me. A+++

best buy!  Time owned: more than 12 months
In fact it is freeware! It's super simple, or just super. Anybody in the animal reign can send perfect CW. Stunning! Makes CW as much easy as PSK, or easier!

Pretty good program  Time owned: months
I download CW Type few days ago.. Built the simple opto isolator circuit and fitted it into a DB9 connector..plugs into the COM port on my ASUS MB computer I built.. Keys the rear key input on my FT2000D... Didn't work right off until I did the CW Type's set-up correctly.. I use the break-in & monitor features of the Yeasu... Works Great! Still learning some of the tricks this simple program has.. Sends code perfectly..
Will send off my $35 for sure..

Difficult translation to English  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Looks like simple software to operate but can't get it to transmit with my RigBlaster Plus due to difficulty in figuring out how to set up the Com Port. Should be an easy thing to do but with this software, the software is lost in translation from Russian to English.

Hot Diggety  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Running this in conjunction with W1GEE parallel port cable, and couldn't be simpler. Seeing as how I have feets for fists, this fits like a glove (or would that be a sock?).

Works well  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I use it with a TS-830S in SSB mode by running audio from my soundcard to the mic input of my tranceiver. Very handy for casual QSOs but not suitable for DX or pileups where hi speed switching is necessary.

Simply GREAT!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
It works and works well on my old 75MHz Pentium Toshiba laptop (you don't need a sound "card" to transmit -- and it's FREE!

If you're thinking of a memory keyer or keyboard, and have an old laptop (or desktop) computer around, download CW Type and try it. You'll need a simple cable. Try for schematics to build or to purchase a very usable one by W1GEE (USD$30 including shipping in US, others USD$35).
