New MicroHam USB micro KEYER III

The new micro KEYER III ™ is the first and only USB interface for high dynamic range amateur radio that uses a processing chain, in all phases of the audio signal, to 24 bit. It is also the most powerful all-in-one USB interface for operations with a single transceiver that fully supports digital and voice operation, including mic switching.

Connected to your PC via a single USB port, the micro KEYER III ™ works with any Windows-based log and CAT-control program for CW, SSB, FSK and digital operations (RTTY, FT8, WSJT, PSK31, SSTV, etc. .).

The micro KEYER III ™ includes a CAT port for the control of your transceiver that supports all the most common standards (RS-232, CI-V, Kenwood and Yaesu TTL), a powerful CW keyer with memory that uses the K1EL WinKey chipset , a Digital Voice Keyer for SSB, two audio processing channels for dual receiver transceivers, automatic microphone selection and buffer / sequencer for amplifier or LNA control.

Compared to 16-bit audio interfaces or any transceiver with a USB port, including high-end transceivers from the most renowned manufacturers, the micro KEYER III ™ takes advantage of the exclusive 24-bit audio processing, offering a higher dynamic range (> 105 dB ), preserving the performance of the transceiver CPU that would otherwise be limited by computer audio processing (digital mode) and 16-bit USB audio signal chain.

For the connection to the transceiver, the micro KEYER III ™ uses the same DB37 cables specific for each transceiver, already successfully tested on the MK, MKII or MK2R interfaces and maintains full compatibility with all the log programs and with all the accessories made for the MKII version.
