The PicoKeyer-Plus has been a huge success, with thousands of kits sold around the world.  They have been used for QRP and portable operation, beacons, in ham shacks, built into radios, used as club projects, the list goes on and on.  With that many of them in use over the past ten plus years, you better believe I get feedback from my customers!  Most of the requests for new features fall into three categories -- more buttons, a headphone jack, and an easier to use menu.  Well, UR 599 OM ES YL... 

This keyer has all of the features of the latest PicoKeyer Plus - and plenty more!  You get four buttons, one for each message for super easy message recording and playback.  A built-in sidetone audio jack lets you plug in your ear buds, headphones, amplified speaker or just pipe the sidetone audio into your homebrew rig's audio section.  I've also done a major overhaul on the setup menu -- you can now set up everything (other than recording messages)  using just the front panel pushbuttons, without even plugging in a paddle!

The new firmware builds on previous versions of the PicoKeyer with a number of new features.  Of course the most obvious is instant access to all four messages with the touch of a dedicated button.  Recording a message is now a lot simpler -- just hold down the button until you hear the prompt.  Just like the buttons on your car stereo, and just like you'd expect them to work.

There's also a completely new setup function.  Use the front panel buttons like arrow keys (they're even marked on the panel) to scroll through menu settings and make changes as needed.  And, if you want to switch between your paddle and straight key -- there's no need to remove the battery!  A quick button press is all it takes.

The Ultra PicoKeyer complete kit contains everything you need to build a stand-alone Morse code memory keyer and code practice oscillator with speed control. You can put it in the nice looking, pre-drilled plastic box (included), build it into your next homebrew rig, or even retrofit it into your favorite commercial rig!  At just a touch over 2" x 2" you can stuff this little circuit board into some pretty tight spots. The latest PicoKeyer chip and all the parts you need are included, along with a high quality double-sided printed circuit board with plated-through holes and silkscreened component outlines. The pushbuttons and speed control are mounted on one end of the board, and the RIG, KEY and PHONES jacks are on the other.

Code practice oscillator??  Yep!  Since the Ultra PicoKeyer kit includes a small on-board speaker and a headphone jack, and works with single or dual lever paddles and straight keys, you can use yours as a code practice oscillator to learn and practice Morse code.  Use it with a straight key, or learn to use a paddle or "squeeze" keyer if you want!  You can even use "bug mode" to simulate a semi-automatic key and master this mode as well.  If the on-board speaker isn't loud enough for a noisy environment you can always plug in a pair of ear buds or headphones.  Or, you can even add an audio amp and larger speaker for group code practice sessions.  A pair of inexpensive PC amplified speakers works great!

The Ultra PicoKeyer is an advanced, super low power iambic keyer with a long list of standard features. Here are the main features of the PicoKeyer Kit:

The PicoKeyer uses FLASH and EEPROM memory to store all settings and message memory, meaning NO backup batteries and NO lost settings.
