New Key for Christmas
The key is mounted to a Cocobolo base I made. The brass nameplate has my call sign laser etched on it. The key was made by Molded Insulator Co., one of the manufactureres contracted by the US government to manufacture this key during WWII. The key is new old stock and never been used. With the nice base it will have some collector value. Its maiden voyage was during the SKCC Straight Key Sprint on 12/28/2011 and garnered 19 QSOs. It is much easier on the wrist than the AMECO that I had been using and will be the key I now will use for straight key sprints.
