Post Palm Morse keys - End of an era
Some may already know, but I've just seen this on the SOTA reflector.

Dieter at Palm Radio has decided to cease production for health reasons. Most suppliers have no stock left anymore.

I'm surprised the company was not sold on, or maybe a family member could continue running it :scratch:

I have four of their (his?) keys, and they are very well made. I particularly like the Pico Paddles, very tiny but they have quite a wide range of tension and gap settings.

The only product of theirs I'm not so happy with is the code cube (mini keyer). Nothing is marked on them, and they have a lot of 'modes'. A number of times I have pressed the wrong button by accident and had to do a full reset in order to get back to the home menu settings. They seem too complex for their own good. Excellent design but very difficult to 'drive'.

The keys are great though! :thumbsup:

Practise is a verb meaning ‘do something repeatedly to improve a skill’. It is a systematic training by multiple repetitions to master that skill.

I was given one. Never used it. Still in its box. Been meaning to flog it.......looks like its value just went up :-)

I prefer my BamaTech Magnetic.
