can of worms  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
For me the Island Keyboard keyer is still a work in progress. There are at least four errors or contradictions in the six page instructions, the schematic, the parts list, and the adendum. There is even a section in the instructions entitled 'GOTCHAS'. They got me alright. This is like the kits of old that made you wish you had bought a HeathKit instead. Yeah, one of those.
Don't waste your money.

Old keyboard makes good CW  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Quality board. Very easy to assemble. The more difficult part is to double check how to connect the keyboard.
Old Keyboards should be ok but not too old (should not draw too much current).

With the installed options, keyer and the SSR tube keying chip, it can be used with almost any rigs.

A paddle input is provided. Combined with the Touch Switch II makes a terrific combo.
