When I got back into ham radio I imagined I would do all of my CW work with an iambic key, so I purchased the ZN-9. I started hearing *CQ SKCC* and soon joined the [Straight Key Century Club][skcc]. I soon realized that I needed a real straight key, so returned to Tony Baleno, N3ZN.
This key feels like sending on air! The brass straight key makes me feel like an old time telegrapher. It makes SKCC events even more fun.
