K16 Morse Keyer I.C. - £7.00 each
Microchip continues to offer higher functionality in their PIC microcotrollers which allows us to offer better and better keyer ICs. Our latest keyer is the K16 and it is available now. This is our 16th year selling keyer ICs and we have implemented a list of "please add this" requests as well as things that no other keyer chip offers. The K16 has non-volatile EEPROM memory, when you remove power it retains messages and settings. Twelve memory slots are provided along with many new embedded commands.
In addition to HSCW support the K16 provides QRSS for VLF beacon work.
You can buy just the I.C. or the K16 kit. Please Note: that the K16 is not pin compatible with previous K1EL keyer ICs.
The "KANGA" K16 Keyer Kit - £16.50 each
This kit is a inexpensive single IC Morse Code Keyer/Processor which can be used either in contesting or casual use.
It is based on the very popular K16 I.C. developed by Steve Elliot K1EL who has kindly allowed Kanga Products to produce their own PCB.
"The K16 Keyer has many original features, and with a PCB measuring 38mm x 35 mm it is small enough to fit inside a transceiver".
