(early 1972)

Orv WB6WEY ET3 (now W6BI) at WA0VPK's Drake 'A' line station.

The electronic keyer on top of the Drake was built by WA0VPK (now AE0Q)
from a 1969 QST article, used 11 RTL IC's for iambic keying with automatic
letter and word spacing. I layed out a double-sided PC board and a friend
etched it where he worked.
The iambic paddles were made from two hand-keys bolted back-to-back. I still
have both the keyer and paddles!
