Build the straight key!
All it takes is a Red Rooster silicone oven mitt (available from kitchen stores or Amazon), 2 brass brad contacts, mono plug, and a 2 conductor cable. Punch two holes, insert brads, solder it up, and you're ready for action!
Simply slip your hand inside Red's beak and flap away for flawless dits and dahs!
Key clucks optional; chirps and birdies guaranteed! Works best at the crack of dawn.
Makes a great club project.
Red says, "Time to think outside the 21 piece bucket" - build one today!
Experts in Murphy's Law:
Shack mascots Snowball and Keno take a late night turn at the controls. They're responsible for throwing monkey wrenches into my projects, repairs, & restorations!
And speaking of monkeys, no shack is complete without a miniature 3" Curious George lunchbox spy radio!
Contrary to popular belief I did not get my ticket from inside a cereal box. I was licensed the old fashioned way, in front of a mean and nasty FCC examiner. I have worked at several odd jobs over the years including a couple of even ones along the way. Retired and now a full time ham, 2014 marks my 47th year of pounding brass. My other interests include RV'ing and electric guitar. I avoid gardening at all costs.
