[Playing the bug]     [Debounce circuit]



A cheap debounce circuit for the bug:



Only junkbox transistors are used.

R4 and C2 set the debounce behavior. 0.7×R4×C2 has to be larger than the longest “open” bounce. Q4 and Q5 act as a comparator.

Power supply voltage is +5V and is limited by the maximum Vbe voltage allowed

Number of inputs and outputs is optional. The BS170 at the output is suitable for most transceivers.
