    check out the offerings at ... I have one of their dual paddles I use for portable ops, not bad for the money. The website is wonky, the single paddle images all show dual paddle models, but they do indeed have singles.

    Go to the SKCC WES web page ( and select the "results" tab at the top of the page. Then call up any of the March sprints and scroll down to the comments at the bottom of the page. The March theme is cooties and bugs and you'll find pictures of commercial and homebrew sideswipers.

    I have not tried one Mike since I'm sure it is out of my skill level. I have had the pleasure to work a couple Ops. who had some of the best sounding CW I have ever copied using a cootie. Super smooth and a treat to copy. One of those Ops. I QSO with on occasion but I will not post his call although out of respect for his skill I am tempted. 73 Rich
