It can depend on whether you're right or left-handed Bret, although it
doesn't always.Right-handers almost always want dots on the thumband
dashes on the fingers [it's called the "Tyranny of the Majority"]. Some
left-handers like to reverse that, many do not, I am one, left-handed
bugs were way outside my price range years ago. I have a second paddle
set up on the left of the keyboard, also "right handed" which I tend to
use the most.
The good news: You can change the sense of your paddle in the K3s menuso:
Connect the frame of the key to the sleeve of the plug. Connect one of
the others to the ring of the connector, and the third to the tip
connection. Plug it into paddle jack and go into TX TEST. Try it out.
If you're right-handed you probably want the dots on the thumb. If
they're not, hold MENU to get into CONFIG, use VFO B knob to get to CW
PADL, and use VFO A to change it.
Both ways with a K-line, no extra charge.

I'm signed up for CW Academy Sept-Oct and picked up a used K8RA P4 Key

connectors on top at the back. How do I connect that to my K3S?
