Radio Adventures is a small engineering company specializing in the
design and manufacturing of ham radio equipment
components, kits, and accessories for both the amateur radio and
commercial communications markets.
The CodeBoy Keyer is temporarily out of production. We expect it or an equivalent to be
re-introduced during the first quarter of 2008.

Sometimes, less is more. As you can see from
picture above, the CodeBoy has a single control on the front to turn it
on and off and set the speed. That's it. No
batteries or power cord to worry about, no distracting sidetone to turn
off, just plug in your paddle (and/or key), connect it to your
transmitter, and away you go.
Compare to more "advanced" keyers which require you to keep the manual
handy at all times!
