Visit with NW7US, the control operator of the special event station, K3Y/0, during one of the many shifts during January (2015).  K3Y is the special event callsign of the Straight Key Century Club (SKCC).  The special event operates each January.

K3Y, the Straight Key Century Club's annual January celebration, commemorates the club's founding in 2006 following the American Radio Relay League's Straight Key Night. A small group of participants wanted to extend the fun of SKN throughout the year. The SKCC is the result.

For the first three years, the club's founders used K1Y, K2A, and K3Y as the celebration's special-event calls. But someone cleverly noticed that a 3 is nothing more than a backwards, curvaceous E. This "KEY" event has operated under the K3Y call ever since.

The on-air party is open to members and non-members alike. It runs from 0000 UTC Jan. 2 through 2359 UTC Jan. 31. It's a great time to introduce others to the joys of hand-crafted Morse code using straight keys, bugs, and side swipers.
