Electronic Cw Bug Keyer Circuit


Posted on Apr 23, 2012    5013

This keyer uses skin conductivity to simulate the old-fashioned mechanical CW bug keyer. When the dit paddle is touched the bias on the inverter, ICl-a is shunted to ground, and it produces a logic high, causing oscillator sections CD to generate a low-frequency square wave keying Ql for a series of dits.

When the dah paddle is touched, section b produces a logic high, driving keyer Ql on.
