Begali Key for KX3

I noticed an ad in QST for the new Begali key for the KX3, KX1 and FT-817. It mounts to the radio, but doesn't plug in like the Elecraft built in keys do, you have to use the normal CW key input. It is fine piece of equipment.

The link to the Begali website is

I have no commercial interest in the Begali, but I thought it worthy of mention. It is a little pricey, but such is life.


  1. Good evening Mike, I have the Begali contour key and with out a doubt they are one of the best keys out there. I have not tried the new key for the KX3 as I use the Elecraft key that came with the KX3. I am sure this key is great as it is made by Begali.

  2. Mike,

    I have a couple of Begali keys myself, the Strativarius and his portable key. They are works of art, as well as very nice keys. I have already ordered the Adventurer.
