Pixie 2 Question

From KI6FCT

I just built a Pixie 2. It seems to be receiving well, but I'm unsure about the transmission. I know it uses a Colpitts oscillator, running all the time, and the amp is keyed. I hooked it up to a Hamtenna in my car, and I can hear the continuous tone on my base station. However, there is no change in the transmission when the key is used. Shouldn't the tone increase when the key is used? Any ideas?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Alan
