Palm Portable Key (PPK) is a fully functional
portable straight key. Dedicated straight-key users will immediately be
impressed with the way this "tiny giant" feels. It is perfectly
at home in the shack, but there is simply nopthing better for portable
and mobile operation. Here is a summary of the PPK's features:
with a sturdy aluminium housing (black structured powder coating) which
perfectly protects the key when locked in the transport position
- Ingeniously designed and manufactured in Germany -
the PPK was modelled on the famous German Junker
key when it comes to the feel, not the size!
cable - ending in a 3,5mm stereo phone plug - supplied and already
attached - through a solid strain relief integrated in the key.
- Unique way
of adjusting the arm tension in six incremental steps - unlike fiddling
with a screw, simply change the notch and always have a reproducable
arm tension rate
- High quality contacts made of 99,8 percent nickel
material guarantee longevity and reliability.
adjustment of contact spacing through supplied Allen key. 90 degree
rotation (quarter turn) changes gap only 0,125mm (0,05")
- Supplied adjustment key stores conveniently in the
Quick Mount base and is always at hand.
- Magnetic Quick Mount base which allows a wide range
mounting variations also included.
- Perfect for "pocket portable" Morse practice when connected to the Tone Tube code practice oscillator.
for the PPK|
standard wiring of the stereo plug attached to the PPK is such that both
tip and ring are keyed to ground. With most radios
this is fine, but users of the Elecraft K1, KX1, and KX3 transceivers
will need to modify the wiring as described in the wiring notes
for the PPK
This removes the ring connection so that the PPK keys from tip to
ground. Other radios may require this modification. The screw that holds the mechanism is a Torx T6 but it can me removed/installed with a small jeweler's screwdriver.

Recently I bought the Palm Radio PPK key. Service was
excellent from "Morse Express". The product arrived within a
week, clearing Customs and all. Mine came complete with magnetic
mount and a scratch protective key-pad which was a
nice touch. I
use it both mobile and at home base. It sits on top of the 817 and
came crashing down, supporting radio and all, when I tripped over the
coax. hi hi. No damage done while key was extended. It is a
piece of equipment. The next day I made my first portable QRP QSO.
Well done Palm Radio and Morse Express.
