If interested contact for details

Key2Keyboard takes the Morse code input from a straight or Iambic key, via a MY KEY SERIAL or MY KEY SERIAL2 device, and emulates many of the keyboard functions into your favorite Windows app (Example FLDigi).  A MY KEY SERIAL2 device, or serial port using the RTS line can also send Morse code to a transmitter.  It can also be used to practice your keying or use as a text to Morse code interface.

Software Required:

Windows 10 (other platforms not tested).  Lightweight: 2MB disk space and 20MB memory

Hardware Required: 

Your favorite key and a MY KEY SERIAL, MY KEY SERIAL2, or serial port using CTS and DSR for the key inputs and DTR as a control line. As an alternative to a serial device a mouse or mouse interface, such as the MY KEY MOUSE, can be used for practice only and can NOT be used to engage the keyboard functionality.


  • Straight, Iambic, and Bug (with single paddle) modes
  • Serial (preferred) or Mouse (limited capability) interfaces
  • Optional Keying to transmitter
  • 10 Macro functions
  • Keyboard emulator to push decoded Morse code into your favorite app!
  • (and more to come…….)


Although Key2Keyboard is currently free, we ask to register your software.  This allows us to keep track to see if Key2Keyboard is popular enough to warrant future enhancements.
