The 302R remote/encoder keypad allows armchair operation of the JUPITER, PEGASUS, RX-350D, OMNI-VII, ORION, or ORION II. Black color is cosmetic match for current TEN-TEC HF transceivers. Direct frequency entry from keypad and control of some transceiver functions from three function buttons located above the tuning knob. Function key operation will vary with different transceivers and controlled within the MENU of each transceiver.

This makes it so easy to change bands,frequencys,steps,sweep and modes,sits next to my mic no more reaching up to the rig,a nice accessory to my Jupitor set up.

It sits right along side my laptop, has programmable keys and a key pad and feels like a natural extension. I really did not know if I was going to like it or even use it, but that doubt was removed within minutes of plugging it in. For the contester or serious DX'er it will add comfort and convenience. For the casual HF'er it will add a dimension that they will not be able to do without. One of the best accessories I have.

An accessory that is almost a "must own" if you operate one of the Ten-Tec radios that accepts the remote pod. It works flawlessly, and the added feature of having programmable function keys is a plus!

This is a fine compliment to my Jupiter.
When working offsets, this remote with key entry really speeds things up and aids in reducing "reach" for the most used controls, i.e. band jumping, mode, and step adjustments.
Fine product. Wish i had ordered one years ago!

Not much to this, simple, yet useful accessory which I use to place a tuning knob, three function buttons, and direct frequency entry keypad in a convenient spot on the operating desk. This allows me to rest my arm on the desk, and twiddle the knobs and buttons in a casual and relaxed manner, which is especially convenient and comfortable when just tooling up and down the band looking for a contact, or fine tuning the VFO. I use one function button to activate the band spectrum scope to "sweep" the band, and another one to change the tuning step. The ability to use either a traditional tuning nob or direct frequency entry without raising or moving my hand is makes tuning the rig super easy.
This accessory makes it very easy to switch from tuning the rig to working a code key as you can place it right next to your key or paddle and hardly move your hand and forearm to reach either the tuning pod or the key/paddle and puts the tuning function on the same level as the key /paddle so that switching between keying and tuning quick and easy, requiring very little movement of the hand.
That is just MY take, anyway... James - K8JHR
