    GREAT topic! Sorry I missed the live show but I will certainly catch the podcast. Soon to be added to my arsenal are the HST Mark III and the Traveler. Normally I'm not a big fan of keys with magnetic returns, but in the Traveler's case I'm making an exception. My old Palm Paddle reached end-of-life and they don't make 'em anymore.

    Bonjour, j'ai eu le plaisir de manger avec le fondateur de cette usine lors d'un Hamfest en Suisse, ce fut une grande découverte de ce Monsieur d'une grade simplicité

    One other reference for "Lombardy" as used in the podcast would be that it is the "L" in aLfa romeo, dating to when that car company was founded very early in the 20th century and before Nicola Romeo bought in. That would connect for some of us better than the references that were given.
    But it was certainly a great show!

    Good show, paints a whole different picture of what I have visualized the company. I just wonder how many units he sells. Used market and several other competition, I would not think it could be very profitable, but could be wrong. I will be getting one of his keys. His is the bench mark.

    I have the Traveler and the Sculpture. Both are very nice paddles. I use the Traveler when I activate SOTA or other QRP activities and the Sculpture sits on the desk proudly. Pietro handed me the Sculpture at the Dayton Hamfest at Xenia and it works fine.

    I have a SIMPLEX with red aluminium finger pieces. It is a good simple but very good key. Pietro is an exceptional person.
