Straight Key Night Is Coming Soon

1883_telegraph_key

The League’s Straight Key Night is creeping up on us. It’s the easiest way to get your call sign in QST (except for maybe becoming a silent key).Work a station or more with a straight key, and email your log of contacts to the ARRL. You get to vote for the operator with the best fist too. Sometimes the number of participants is broken down by location, I sure hope Illinois makes a good showing.

  After switching to the paddles and the electronic keyer I’ve become pretty rusty on the hand key. While trying to get back in shape the other day I had a nice ragchew with “Barn” WA9UEW down in Dixon. No such luck today, trying to escape football games on the tv set, I found contesting games on the ham bands aaaaaaaargh.
