I want to start learning again CW. I have a paddle keyer and a Kenwood 850SAT. Is there a way to practice sending just to myself through the radio so that I can hear myself sending? Thank you 73

On most Kenwood HF radios, if you set the mode to SSB and use the paddles you will hear the sidetone but the rig will not Tx.

* Button "VOX"/"MAN" to "MAN" position
* Button "FULL"/"SEMI" to "SEMI"
Then the keyer works but the TS-850S will not go on transmit mode.

I have a Kenwood TS-2000 and Vibroplex single paddle keyer. Holding the paddle to one side continuously gives repeated dits, the other side repeated dahs. This makes keying symbols much crisper than using a straight key and will allow one to key faster.
CW/FSK/REV to CW
Set VOX to OFF
Volume is Menu 13 TX Sidetone Volume
Tone is Menu 31 CW RX pitch/ TX Sidetone Frequency
Menu 35 is Bug Key Mode to OFF
Changing the Keying Speed ==>
1) Press [CW/FWK/REV]
2) Press [KEY/DELAY] Default is 20 WPM, turn Multi/CH to set the speed.
3) Press [KEY/DELAY] again
