Hi John,
If you are referring to using paddles with a laptop or a tablet, the answer is not yet. I posted the same question about 2 years ago. Per Steve it is planned or at least was then. I haven't heard that the plan has changed but that was before Maestro.

Lan remote with paddles is supported with Maestro.  Otherwise the only real way to do it is using something like a remote rig or a remote ham device.. and if your going to invest there IMO your best bet would be to save a few more bucks for a maestro.

Agree,
For a CW OP that would let you run SSDR, CW Skimmer, a logging program and a spotting program all on one device.  More programs and less to carry around.   And if you want a knob you could plug in a FlexControl.  

Unless FRS changes their mind, it's coming one day.  Maybe a few years sway though.

You can also use 2 K1EL USB winkeyers.  There is K1EL remote program that links the two.
