Speed change, however, is right up front on the screen with the multi function key. It’s good as internal Keyers go, but I like the Logikey keying mode (one of 5 or 6 keying modes available including Curtis A and B), and the memories are more easily accessible. Four buttons right there in front of you.
For contesting, you can increment sequential numbers within an exchange.
Mostly, it’s that I’ve been using a Logikey keyer for over 20 years and having the same programming commands and feel on both radios is more comfortable for me.
The Yaesu has a fine internal keyer, too. I don’t use it, either.
GL and Good DX.
You may need to find room again for the bug tho. ...
