There were no rules about it - just luck of the draw for what was 
captured in the video. My teammate (N3KS) and I opted to not use voice 
keyers to simplify the setup process. It wasn't a big deal. We obviously 
used keyers and computer sending for CW. However, in the heat of the 
moment I often use the paddles - just an old habit.
