Subject: CW via 'Line In'

Hi,
When using the line in method of connecting a keyer/paddle to a computer, does one use a 3.5mm mono plug or stereo plug? The line in socket in the computer appears to be stereo (blue) as standard. But using a keyer/paddle into a radio a mono plug is used.

Hey Mike. Jon r. Kb3xy here. I also want to use some CW and I have a question. Do I plug my flat key right into the sound card. Or Do I need a Keyer to make a tone. Dont want to mess up my Sound Board. Let me know. Jon r. kb3xy@krbenson.com
