    Nice kit, my only problem was getting started, actual build time about 1 hour — but finally completed.

    Directions seem  clear,  but problem using a straight key.  Any suggestions appreciated — thanks in advance.

    Hello Mike,

    It took me a few minutes to discover the following features.

    While you can switch to a straight key to send, messages must be recorded using a paddle.

    The picokeyer detects the straight key by sensing the second ring on the key plug is grounded. This happens when you plug a mono jack in. If you use a stereo jack with a straight key leaving one wire disconnected it will not recognize the straight key.
