Reviews Summary for Array Solutions QSK-Master
Array Solutions QSK-Master Reviews: 13 Average rating: 5.0/5 MSRP: $375
Description: The Array Solutions QSK-MASTER is a 160-6 meter 2500 watt external QSK switch. Internal strapping options include amplifier polarity keying sense, 120/240VAC powering, and turn-off time delay to ensure that the QSK-MASTER is compatible with any transceiver/amplifier combination. And the QSK-MASTERís low current keying interface means that it can be directly keyed by your transceiver without requiring a separate external transceiver/amplifier interface. For maximum reliability the QSK-MASTER is relay-based, using a high-speed signal relay for transceiver and bias switching, and a Jennings high current/high speed vacuum relay for amplifier output switching. This means that the QSK MASTER is essentially lossless, so no optional fan is needed for high duty-cycle operation.
Product is in production.

Best QSK box I have ever seen or used.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Easy to hook up. Easy to control the bias. Great QSK controller. I am now using the QSK Master on Henry 3KA, BTI, and an original Alpha 76. All modified to allow easy bias keying by QSK Master to keep the tubes cool. No moving parts in the amps anymore.

First impression - GREAT  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The QSK Master is one of the best additions to my equipment in many years. I have an AL80B amp and have longed for QSK. I tried another well known unit that I just could not get to work with this amp. The QSK Master has solved that problem. A well built unit that worked the first time I powered it up. Customer service is excellent as I had some questions! Will provide an update after more use.

Fantastic!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Simply put - if you own a non-QSK amp like I do, the QSK Master from Array Solutions will bring your amp to life and make running QRO cw much more enjoyable. I received my QSK Master on the beginning day of the PA QSO Party - and in the time it took to build two coax jumpers and a shorted amp keyline plug, I had the unit in 100% operation. The QSK Master worked flawlessly throughout it's first weekend contest straight out of the box. The QSK Master even comes with it's own power cord wired to the unit - no wall wart to deal with! The QSK Master is a keeper - with solid metal construction & a 'no frills' way to put QSK into any amp.
