The MX Sprint is no longer available (the Nye SSK-001 is out of production). We'll leave the page here for reference purposes.
Morse Express presents the MX Sprint, an integration of Wm M. Nye's SSK-001 Super Squeeze Key Paddle and Chuck Olson's PK-3 Memory Keyer.
The MX Sprint combines a very powerful and flexible electronic keyer with a rugged and reliable go-anywhere paddle for the ultimate in keying convenience-- just connect your rig's key line via the convenient RCA phono jack on the top.
The SSK-001 Paddle features gold plated contacts, adjustable contact spacing and arm tension, and large, smooth finger pieces. It has a heavy cast base with rubber feet, and a metal cover to protect the mechanism (and the keyer). The SSK-001 paddle without the keyer is also available from Morse Express.
The PK-3 Keyer from Chuck Olson's Jackson Harbor Press has two separate 52 character memories PLUS callsign memory. Speed is controlled by a pot, and a single pushbutton switch provides for an "instant message" such as a CQ call as well as access to the programmable functions (in combination with the paddle). It has a side-tone oscillator and pot controlled OR programmable speeds from 5-39WPM. It will even tell you (in Morse) what speed is currently set. Also featured are program selectable A/B keying modes, and beacon send mode. Click here to view the PK-3 manual in pdf format.
Like most modern keyers, the Sprint is designed to key transistor rigs with a positive key-line voltage.
The MX Sprint weighs 2 Lbs and the base measures 3" wide by 4" long. Total length from rear to tip of paddles is 5 1/4" and height to the top of the speed control knob is 2 5/8." The Sprint requires a 9V battery for operation (not included).

What Others are Saying...
Just a note to let you know the MX Sprint arrived here in fine condition
last Thursday and I am enjoying it quite a bit. Thanks for steering me in
this direction -- it is just what I wanted and I didn't even know it. Very
easy to learn and use, while compact enough for my limited space. Every so
often I send an extra dot or dash but I made mistakes with my straight key
too, and so what. Thanks again. Hope you sell a bunch of 'em.
[added later] One week after receiving it, I earned top honors in our club for
CW contacts made during Field Day-- If that doesn't tell a prospective
purchaser something about the Sprint, nothing will!
I'm very happy with the operation and feel of the MX Sprint.
Thanks for a good idea/product.
