Recommend getting set up now. With the holidays coming, things are going to get too busy and you might miss it.
Some details.

I plan to run the HW-16 with NYE and J-38 keys.

Thanks for the heads up. I already have my homebrew TX, I still need to build my RX for SKN!! I would like to have it ALL homebrew this year, not just my TX.

(and I can't use a straight key, but I think a bug counts!).

See ya.

I also will be using my HW-16! Probably with Chinese Army Key but may plug in the J-38 or other keys too. It usually sits on a shelf except for the month or two around SKN.

I did over 100 straight key QSO's in the past week but with more modern rigs.

In ARRL SS phone, 40 and 80 were sounding just wonderful, and I was thinking to myself "if only I were on CW..."

I'll be using my novice DX60 but with the HG10, sorry not quite enough of a purist to go back to crystals. I still have my SpeedX
but the Vibroplex deluxe is soooooooo nice and I am now so use to it with all the 6 meter CW I do plus helping guys getting started on CW at or near the SKCC frequencies I will stick with it.
