Electronic CW "Bug" Keyer

This keyer uses skin conductivity to simulate the old-fashioned mechanical CW bug keyer. When the "dit" paddle is touched the bias on the inverter, IC1-a is shunted to ground, and it produces a logic high, causing oscillator sections C&D to generate a low-frequency square wave keying Q1 for a series of "dits." When the "dah" paddle is touched, section b produces a logic high, driving keyer Q1 on.
