  • For CW on the K3 I use as my main key a Begali Magnetic Signature that I inherited from close friend K8WDN after he lost his battle with cancer in December 2013. I also use a P-4 Iambic Brass Key made by K8RA as well as a Vibroplex Iambic.
  • For CW on the KX3 I use a Bencher Iambic.
  • For CW for special events like Straight Key Nite I use a WW2 Key and Plug Assembly NR 8 with leg straps or a Vibroplex Champion bug from 1945 or a Monarch KY 102 (AKA Hi Mound BK 100).
  • A CW HAM RADIO OPERATOR CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH KEYS !!!

 

  • I use the Timewave Navigator for CW (Winkeyer) and the Digital Modes (FSK RTTY, PSK, JT65, SSTV - digi and analog).
