QRPBuilder KX Mini Paddle Adapter kit – $15
Why have a paddle you can only use with one radio?
The KX Mini Paddle Adapter accepts either the KX Single Lever or KX Iambic paddles and allows them to be used remotely from the radio or with other radios. Fabrication is the same pcb style as our paddles, with all the electrical connections accomplished by the mechanical assembly, and secured with the enclosed hardware.
We see no reason the adapter shouldn’t work with any other existing paddles that attach to the front of the KX transceivers, as it duplicates the original mounting and electrical connections.
The output to your transceiver is via a standard 3.5mm stereo jack or direct wiring with a custom cable. There is an onboard jumper selectable header for right or left hand polarity. Holes are provided for attaching the adapter to a user supplied custom base for extra weight or if a custom base is desired. The tools required are a soldering iron with a small tip, rosin core solder, Phillips screwdriver, and a flat surface to work on. Allow an hour or so to build. On a difficulty scale of 1 to 5, 5 being the most difficult, this is rated at 2-3.
