Looking for an affordable, portable CW paddle? You’ve found it!
The Te-Ne-Ke (“teeny key”) is an iambic paddle designed and patented by Boyd Mason, NE8KE and built in West Michigan by members of the North Ottawa Amateur Radio Club. The contacts are made from beryllium copper springs and brass pins, attached to a stainless steel head. The key connects to your rig or keyer with a standard 3.5mm audio patch cable (not included). This key is small in stature with makes it great for POTA, SOTA, and mobile operations!
A note on variations
Several variations of the Te-Ne-Ke currently exist. The head used to be made from CNC-machined aluminum channel stock with a plastic jewel on the front. Current production units are made from laser-cut stainless steel, without the jewel.
