THis is just a code practice oscillator plugged into an HT.

If you want to operate HT CW, then wait for the new Kenwood 3 band HT
with ALL MODE  receiver..  Set to 144.1 CW and  Just plug your CW key into
the MIC jack and away you go.  The CW reception will hopefully be just
fine.  THe problem will be that you are keying a synthesized FM XMTR (with
no audio) so it will sound chipry...

The good news is that you could do Satellite CW from your shirt pocket HT
via any of the analog birds.  Not bad for a "fun" thing to do.  No, the CW
will sound terrible, but hey, it will be fun...
