Palm Pico Single (PPS)
Based on the famous Pico Paddle, Palm Radio offers a single lever paddle: The »Palm Pico Single« (PPS).
It represents the world's smallest single-lever paddle. With housing dimensions of only 15 x 15 x 50 mm (WxHxD) and weighing only 8.3 grams, the key is tiny but represents a full featured single paddle. Just as known from all Palm Radio keys, the »PPS« can be retracted into it's robust housing (impact-resistant ABS plastic) for maximum transportation protection.
The key is equipped with galvanically gold-plated contacts to guarantee maximum contact safety and reliability.
The lever of the »Palm Pico Single« bears a clever mechanism for the automatic center positioning of the lever - no adjustments to be made!
Two different set screws per lever side allow precise and individual adjustment of the contact gap and the spring pressure. They can be adjusted with a matching Allen key, which can be stored in the base plate of the key (»PP-QMM«) - perfectly placed and always at hand.
As known from it's popular dual-lever brother, the Pico Paddle (»PP«), device-specific installation kits (»MK-KX3« and »MK-817«) can be used to attach the »PPS« to some popular HF transceivers (eg. KX2, KX3, FT-817).
Another accessory for the »PPS« is a universally applicable mounting plate, the »Pico Plate«.
The »Palm Pico Single« has a 2.5 mm (1/10 inch) stereo phone jack at the back side. The connecting cable for the »Pico Paddles« are very thin, but robust and flexible. They have a length of 70 cm (2.3 feet) and carry one 2.5 mm (1/10 inch) plug on one end, the other end has a 3.5 mm (1/8 inch) plug for connection to the transceiver or keyer.
The supplied standard cable is the »PP-CC-LT« (left paddle on tip of the 1/8 inch stereo phone plug).
A reverse cable »PP-CC-RT« (right paddle on tip of the 1/8 inch stereo phone plug) is optionally available.
Delivery: The »Palm Pico Single« comes in a robust transport box (»Travel Case«) with connecting cable and instructions. The included PP QuickMount (»PP-QMM«) is equipped with strong neodymium magnets so that the »PPS« can easily and securely be attached to any ferromagnetic surfaces (e.g. directly to the transceiver).

Especially our SOTA friends wished for a longer paddle connecting cable, as the supplied cable sometimes seems not long enough, e.g. if the TRX is stowed in a backpack standing on the ground. For such cases, we offer the »Extension-CC«.
It can be used for all our keys, is about 70 cm long, thin and highly flexible.
The connections are a 3.5 mm stereo coupling and a 3.5mm stereo plug, both gold plated.
For DIY cables (e.g. with other lengths) to connect the Mini Paddle, we offer our new »plug kit« also individually. It has an integrated strain relief and is suitable to solder your own cables with a diameter of up to 2.3 mm.
