A device that converts the movements of a set of paddles into morse code. Nowadays, these are often built into amateur radio transceivers, but keyers can also be found in separate boxes, controlling the radio via a so-called keying line. The circuitry in the keyer varies the resistance in the keying line between very low, and very high, according to the on-off structure of the morse signal.
