Morse Keys for Loan

Hello Fellow CW Enthusiasts,

These keys are available for CW group members or CVARC members.  The top key is a “coffin key” bug, the others are Signal Electric models R62 and R63. 

The keys are not for sale and not intended for resale, they are available for long time use.  CW group members or CVARC members are encouraged to put these keys to use and get on the air.  Let’s get them into the hands of someone who needs them.

I will be at the club meeting tomorrow (5-16-19) and can meet there with anyone interested. 

Regards,

Norm-AB6ET

Morse Group Meeting with Kate Hutton

Guest speaker Kate Hutton-K6HTN, the “Earthquake Lady,” was a staff seismologist at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, CA where she monitored earthquakes for 37 years. During that time, she was regularly on television following earthquakes to explain the seismic event. 

Dr. Hutton is also a licensed ham and she’ll be discussing how she got started in amateur radio, Morse code, and traffic handling.

April 6 at 10:00 am in the Community Room of the East County Sheriff’s Station.

Any questions should be directed to Steve Gillis-KZ6H.
