Spotlight W5EEX Homebrew Keyer
W5EEX Homebrew Keyer Here is a photo of a keyer I built up from mostly scrap box parts. It is based on a Picaxe-08M micro controller. Note the re- purposed parts....the case is an iPhone5 box, the battery pack is from one of the free Harbor Freight LED flashlights. Other re- purposed parts are from the junk box. Keyer works great!
