Re: [FT897] cw with hand mic
- Without having the manual handy, if memory serves, there is a menu, though I don't recall which one, that you switch from KEY to MIC. This allows you to use the up and down buttons on the microphone for the dots and dashes. I used if for a short time until I bought my first key.

- 40, 80 and 160 are noisy bands.
