Maker Faire Morrse Sender 2016 (box of 10)Price: $80.00
Again, I traveled down to New York City for the weekend of October 1&2 to help out the New York Hall of Science Amateur Radio Club at the New York Maker Fair 2016. My mission was to put a little more MAKER flair into the HosARC booth. I updated my original Maker Sender Key from 2 years ago and created a through hole version of the key for easier building by first time builders. The action is pretty \'light\' and this time I rearranged the circuit so a buzzer can be added to the keyer in parallel to the LED. You can also do a little mod work, jettison the buzzer and simply use the buzzer pads to use it as a TINY straight key!
They are cute, and the SUPER Bright LED is good for upwards to a mile on a clear night! The buzzers do make it much easier to learn to send the code due to the nice audio feedback while keying...
This item is a smorgasboard pack of parts to build 10 kits. A complete set of parts including: circuit board, 9 volt battery & snap, buzzer, ultragright LED, resistor, nuts & bolts. Makes a great activity for scouts before they go on an overnight camping trip. Leave off the buzzer and they can send Morse messages to each other at night....
