I have a little begging to do, but first a (funny?) story.
Last night I was trying to convince my 12-year-old
daughter that the Novice exam would not be all that hard
for her. After she correctly answered the first several
common sense questions from the exam pool, I read her the
one that asks "When may you deliberately interfere with
another station's communications?" Before I could read
her the four choices, she blurted out "Whenever there's a
contest!" What a perceptive kid.
Now for the begging (yes, this is slightly commercial, but
Trey gave it his OK). . .
Among some of the radio equipment recently stolen from
my house was an AEA CK-2 keyer (the CONTESTER). For
whatever reason, I was particularly fond of it. It fit my
hand, my style, whatever. Unfortunately, AEA stopped
making this model many moons ago and used ones are
extremely rare at hamfests out here in the wastelands. Do
any of you have one that you might be willing to part with?
Reply directly to me, please (and I'll also be willing to
listen to any of you who would like to list the merits of
your favorite modern keyers).
Thanks for your help.
