In a word, YES!

For we straight key fans, you may simply plug into the "keyer" jack your
beloved J-38 (or whatever) and have at it.

However, this word of CAUTION: You MUST use a three conductor
(tip/ring/sleeve) type plug. You need only connect to the TIP and SLEEVE
(ignore the RING).

DO NOT use a two conductor plug as this will make you very unhappy, not to
mention what it will due to the 847!!  ;)
