For the CW aficionado  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
The detailed history and images make this a reference, interesting read and coffee table book all in one. It is quality bound and printed, logically laid out, with detailed chapters and captions that give a background into keyers and paddles that might otherwise be lost to time. It's fun to think what it would've been like to operate the mechanisms and circuits that made up the formative versions of this equipment. Even homebrew and kits are included. I am proud to have this book in my shack.
