Pico Paddle

The Pico Paddle (PP) is definitely the smallest series production paddle in the world - although this miniature precise paddle is very small in its dimensions and lightweight, it is an absolutely full-fledged dual lever paddle!

The aim of the design was to develop a fully functional miniature paddle, which is ideal to attach to various popular HF transceivers (eg. KX2, KX3, FT-817, MTR, etc). For this purpose, device-specific installation kits can be used (Mounting Kit MK-KX3/Mounting Kit MK-817). Another accessory for the Pico Paddle is a universally applicable mounting plate, the Pico Plate. An ideal and easy solution for mounting all of our Paddles on the right side of the KX3 is the Side Panel for KX3 (SP-KX3).

During development it was essential to us to ensure that the quality of this subminiature paddle can absolutely compete with its bigger brother, the Mini Paddle! Of course, also the Pico Paddle - »typically Palm Radio« - can be retracted into the housing and is perfectly protected during transport. It also uses high-quality, galvanically gold-plated contacts. The adjustments for contact spacing and spring tension are optimally adjustable to the needs of the user in the established manner, using hex screws. Supplied with the Pico Paddle is the quick mounting PP QuickMount (PP-QM), and easy accessible Allen key, which allows easy and precise adjustment of the hex screws.

The Pico Paddle comes in a robust transport box (Travel Case). The included PP QuickMount (PP-QMM) is equipped with strong neodymium magnets so the Pico Paddle can easily and securely be attached to any ferromagnetic surfaces (e.g. directly to the transceiver).

The Pico Paddle has a 2.5 mm (1/10 inch) stereo phone jack at the back side.

The new connecting cables for the Pico Paddle 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.
