    I wanted to purchase a Nye Viking code key. Morse Express no longer has them for sale. I went to the Nye website, and called them. I got an answering machine and left a message with phone number, and in addition, sent them an e-mail message enquiring about a purchase. So far no response. I assume Nye is no longer in business? Does anyone have any knowledge of this company?

    I guess you can read the "handwriting on the wall". They're no longer in business

    Did they process your credit card?

    You might drop a line to Morse Express and ask them what they know about the company. That would be my first step.

    I ended up buying a new, opened box Nye Viking key from another OP in the "Swapmeet" so I don't know. I do know that some companies produce for a while and then stop production while they sell off that stock.

    Check with your credit card company, if you provided that information via the website. If you were charged, have them reverse it.

    Thanks, guys. I will probably try buying a used on at a local hamfest. JARS Hamfest is coming up in November and our own will be next April. If they were still doing business I would expect them to have either called or answered by email.
