      Hi all

      Thanks to Andy G4JNT for publishing his PIC Opera keyer design and software with HEX code.

      It works a treat. It has been keying a test oscillator for a day now.
      Tonight (about 18:00 local) I will put my 1 Watt RF output 500kc/s 6CL6 valve TX on into a LW 35ft up x 128ft top. Opera 600m QRG dial setting 500kc/s USB.

      Don't laugh it has made PA land on the limit in the past.

          Hi all
          While you are all testing Graham's theory on optimum band usage could you report my OP4 transmissions. I am using the stand alone PIC 'JNT designed Opera keyer switching my all Valve (Tube for our Cousins) TX.
          Power now increased to four (4) Watts O/P from the original 1Watt at the antenna up lead. Antenna up lead abt 40 ft x 128ft long E/W. from IO91UX.

            OK Graham have your fun now!!!!

            Are you about today I mean now. I am trying to improve the quality of the signal it's keying about every 1/2 hour on the half and hour approx. Clock time here now approx just after 11:00BST.
            Can you listen or PC?
