We have received many, many requests for an assembled version of WKUSB, fewer folks have the time and/or ability to build a WKUSB kit. We have addressed this in a similar way other amateur radio suppliers have. WKUSB-SMT employs a surface mount version of WKUSB that has all board mounted parts pre-soldered and tested. Final kit assembly involves just soldering in a few through hole components which will take about 15 minutes. Since the WK IC is permanently attached to the PC board, upgrade by replacement is not practical. For this reason, WKUSB-SMT uses the new WK3 keyer IC which can be upgraded over the USB connection. WK3 also adds many new standalone features. In all other respects, WK3 works just like WK2 so it will be compatible with all applications that work with WK2.
WKUSB-SMT $89 USD (partially assembled)
WKUSB-SMT Kit - $89.00
