Larger key keyboards

Has anyone seen these in NZ. I am after one with the larger keys and a full row of function keys.

I know I can get them from overseas, but just wondering if anyone in NZ has them.

You're in luck - there's one on here right now, starting at only 30 bucks too

Thanks, but no function keys.

A large %age of what I do is from the function keys. But the bigger keys would be good for entering the callsign etc.

I use it during ham radio contests and it gets a big fraught at times, someone said they used a bigger key and it reduced the entry errors.

LOL yea Nah, just need thinner fingers like the wifes.

Most gamers need fast keyboards with extra options. So look around for gamer keyboards.

That and something like multiple keyboards; one dedicated for text entry (like the one posted with large keys?) and another set up with a bunch of special functions/macros;

Thanks, unfortunately I would prefer a cordless keyboard, there is a lot of RF floating around and I need ferrite suppressors on all the PC cables, both for pickup and radiation from the PC.

There is a goodun available from the states where there is a higher demand, might just have to bite the bullet.

To deal with multiple keyboards would be too much complexity for a simple function, already going to be dealing with multiple transceivers/aerials/aerial rotators etc.

Never needed all that for a ZC1 :)

Nope, the world has moved on a bucket load since the old 19 set.

Interesting to watch the videos of SO2R operations.

This is the video to make all envious.
