Retired musician (saxophones & guitar). I enjoy collecting, and using, telegraph keys.  Also enjoy keeping my website ticking along - http://www.morsemad.com

SKCC 2133S, FISTS 6459, GQRP 7845, RNARS 3703.

The beautiful and rare morse key pictured above is a Marconi Radio Station key, ex Dorchester Beam Radio Station, Marconi model A.S. No300A. This particular key is c1922 and an absolute joy to use. Following on from this model came the P.S.No213A keys date from the late 1920's. The AS300A and PS213A keys are almost identical in design.

Below is the magnificent GPO No62 double current telegraph key by C.F.Varley. c1858.

My small station currently consists of a Kenwood TS-440S Transceiver and lots of lovely morse keys. As I live in the middle of town there is little room for antennas, so I have a MA6V six band vertical plus a home brew 7m tall telescopic fishing pole vertical antenna, mounted 1m above ground level with tapped loading coils at the base and a few radials strung around the yard (for 40 & 80m). I have a collection of morse keys that I enjoy displaying and of course using for CW.

Favourite keys to use  = Marconi A.S. No300A  c1922 and the Marconi P.S. No213A  1926 on.  

The TS-440S I recently acquired and have had many happy hours repairing it. I used to own one many years ago (1992), and must say they are great rigs.
