Wiring keys

I finally figured out how my radio can be wired up to a telegraph key from scratch. The manual is confusing, because it shows a picture of a paddle requiring a stereo cable (3 wires) and a straight key taking a 2 wire cable, but in reality both kinds of keys take the 3-wire stereo cable! Now that I understand this basic process, I don't feel quite so ashamed of myself. I also filled out the ARRL survey and made sure to tell what got me into ham radio :)
