Palm Mini Paddle

The Palm Mini is a very nice little iambic keyer paddle imported from Germany. Manufactured by Palm Radio, this compact paddle is available in the US from Morse Express. It is a well engineered and constructed paddle that works very well, especially for portable QRP field operations.

Of interest to portable operators is the fact that the paddles retract into the housing when not needed. This makes the assembly very rugged and should survive backpack field trips easily.

The mounting base can be fastened onto the radio or held in place with optional small magnets. The paddle assembly snaps into the base. The pre-assembled cable plugs into the paddle with a 3 pin header style connector and is terminated in a standard 1/8 inch stereo plug.

Also of interest is the newer Palm Pico, an even smaller paddle with the same quality and attention to detail as the Mini.
