QRPBuilder Iambic Piano Mini Paddle – $25
Available late Summer 2022
The Iambic Piano Mini Paddle was borne out of a request from a ham with severe arthritis that had difficulty using the standard horizontal mounted paddle levers. She asked if we could design an inexpensive device with side by side, vertical activated paddle levers. We agreed, and this is the result. It is easy to assemble and uses the same stainless steel contact components as our other paddles. It’s is jumper selectable for dit and dah on either finger, with pcb standard 3.5mm female socket connection to your transceiver, or direct cable connection, 3.5mm plug included. It is stable as assembled or easily mounted on a heavier base.
The assembled weight is less than 1/2 oz. (13.7 gm). All hardware is included. The tools required are a soldering iron with a small tip, rosin core solder, #1 Phillips screwdriver, needle nose pliers, tweezers for the hardware, 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.
