K3 with Begali HST Key Question

KC6CNN
I just received my Begali HST III Key today.
I have it plugged into the paddle slot on my K3.
The single lever works great. But I cant seem to get the Cootie part to
work.
I switched the lever and it just sends the same rhythm no mater which side I
push.
Does the HST need to be in a different plug, like say the keyer plug?
Just asking before I attempt to move the desk and wade threw the wires. hihi

Thank you
Gerald Manthey

There are two 1/4" phone connectors on the K3 back panel. One "KEY" is for a
straight key (mono).  The other, "PADDLE" is for iambic keyers and has dot
and dash "sides".

Thank you Dick and Dave. That is the problem then.
Okay I get to moving the desk and get the key set up where it should. I am looking forward to trying to learn how to use a cootie key.
Thanks again.
Gerald
Bless you guys.

Gerald,

You need to wire the plug from that keyer (or build an adapter) that
connects both the tip and ring of the paddle plug together, and then
plug it into the hand key jack.

The K3 internal keyer does not support a Cootie key - nor does it
support Ultimatic mode for dual lever paddles that I have been asking
for for years, but I solved the problem with a single lever paddle.

The HST has a switch which does the job.  No need to fiddle with plug wiring ..
