Be the son of Alberto make me part of all the love he always feel for the Ham Radio activity. He really love the Morse code as no other one known by me. A lot of people may love the CW as much as him, but I personally only know a few active CW ham radio operator at this moment, and none of them fabricate CW keys. Probably I need to get out more. HI.
Dad is a normal gentleman close the 70 years old with a very young active spirit. He is retired from his personal workshop job, but still keep doing things for his creativity necessity. He is (probably) more hard worker than me and with all of the normal medical problems he is very active ham radio operator.
He has lived all his life around here in Adjuntas, Puerto Rico. When young, during 1962 he married Mom and also began to serve in the US Army for two years here in the Island and also in the 87th Engineer Battalion at Fort Belvoir, Virginia.
His passion for the radio communication comes from the very old time since the beginning of the commercial radio era itself. He start all of this with the valve tube equipments and after lives years from the workshop doing a lot of different things, he is now back and very active on the Ham Radio bands. He formally study electronics and know well the main principles of how radio works, but don't like to work the same with transistors. He really enjoy the analog equipments and after been part of his valve tubes projects, I agree about how good they are. The new DSP radios are welcome at home, but he is always operating the old Kenwood TS-440s, maybe because it is the most powerful of the bunch, but I guess that he prefers it by its simplicity and good CW performer transceiver.
His biggest passion on Ham Radio, of course works the Morse code, but also fabricate the keys to do it. I am not sure what he enjoys more, but let me present here two of his latest little creations.
Both keys are inspire by the Spy Key literature and photos observed around the books and the Web. If you listen him calling CQ SKCC he may be using one of this, but not always. By the way, his SKCC number is 7568, we get together into this new CW adventure during the January special K3Y event. We both are SKCC members. If you interest more info about the keys, you can visit my blog, wp4dqk.blogspot.com and my YouTube channel searching for NP4KT.
All the QSL received are reply the same way when possible. Beauro is OK too.
Best 73 to all, Milton NP4KT
