    No, sorry to say. I'm in a hotel the next two nights on business :( But I'll be back on the C21 on Thursday evening - would LOVE to get you in the log as either W7UUU or KN7NNN or BOTH!! :)

    Good! That gives me time to get the keyer working again!

    (You do NOT want to try and copy my fist on a straight key. Trust me.)

    Let's give it a go Thursday evening!! Keyer is TOTALLY fine - I normally casually operate about 18 WPM but can go well above and well below

    Hello Dave, Glad you found a good Century 21. I just picked a digital one up at a hamfest late last month. Amazingly it was just $25.00. The PTO was frozen in grease. I found the instructions to clean and re-grease the mechanism. It seems near perfect and it has put the fun back into the hobby for me! I’d love to SKED and exchange cards. I am waiting on my new QSL cards to arrive with my Century 21 on the front too!! Ivin W9ILF

    Let's do it!! 40m from about 01:00 to about 03:00 UTC seems to work really well to where you are... let's pick a "less common" frequency like 7.110

    Just let me know day/time and we'll do it!! :)

    Works for me, but it’ll be the Omni. Power supply failed on the external MFJ keyer for the Argosy.
