The GHD SUPER Auto Bug Keyer is a state-of-the-art electronic memory keyer with some unique features. All controls are on the front of the enclosure-- no "programming" is required. Flip the switch on the right and your electronic keyer becomes an "E-bug," or electronic semiautomatic bug key. Many modern keyers can be operated in bug mode, but this one will record your messages with whatever "bug spacing" or rhythm you use. You can even record message memories with a straight key, and all of the details of your "fist" are preserved for instant sending.
There are standard 1/8" phone jacks on the back for connecting your paddle, bug, or key to the keyer, and your keyer to the transmitter. Cables are included. The enclosure is metal, so the keyer is fully shielded. Current consumption is very low, and the internal batteries should provide over a year of use, even if you forget to turn the keyer off once in a while. The GK509A measures 3-1/4 x 2-1/2 inches and weighs 7.9 ounces.
