He cannot use his hands to Squeeze The Pickle (mic).
The best he can do is swing his arm to drop his hand on the table.
So, I made a Mic Switch, that he can use, out of an Easy Button from Staples (an office supply store).
When you push the button it says, "That Was Easy" in a male voice.
The button can also be used as a CW practise key when plugged into a light or buzzer.
It can also be used as an actual CW key if plugged into a transmitter.
Step 1: Easy Take Apart
Use a pocket knife or anything else sharp to peel the rubber feet off.
The 4 screws are exposed.
Remove and save them.
Step 2: Easy Lift Apart
Lift the Easy Button off.
Notice the Easy Circuit Board is below the Easy Button.
This board is programmable, I think, so maybe one of you can tell me how to do just that.
Step 3: Easy Circuit Board Screws
Some of them will be used again, some will not.
Remove the 2 Easy Screws from the Easy Circuit Board.
Now remove the Easy Circuit Board.
Notice the Easy Metal Plate below the Easy Circuit Board.
Save it because I have no idea why they put it in.
It lifts right out no problem and might be usefull for some other project.
Step 4: Easy Sub-Plate Removal
Lift the Easy Sub-assembly off.
As you lift the Easy Sub-assembly you will see the Easy Speaker, 2 Easy Slugs that I left in for Easy Weight, an Easy Black Wire and an Easy White Wire.
Cut the Easy White Wire. (+)
Cut the Easy Black Wire. (-)
These are the battery wires. 2AA's 3v.
