Not to long after I got in to amateur radio, I decided that to aquire the skills I needed in using morse code, I needed a key. So instead of buying a key, I built this straight key.
When I felt that I could pass my code test, I went down and took my code test. It was quite funny, as all the guy's present doing the testing, first had to try my key out.
Oh - I passed my code-test, and have since have aquired other keys, but this one is special.
