SKN 2008

My second SKN (Straight Key Night) and my first time posting to the ARRL Contest Soapbox for this event – was surprised to see what a wild assortment of varied comments, pictures, esp of vintage gear.

SKN runs yearly from 7pm New Years Eve through 7pm New Years Day – emphasizing ragchewing rather than racking up contacts, and bringing out the old gear for fun (and sometimes anguish! when trying to switch from paddles to bug) info at

It’s real easy to post comments and photos to the Soapbox.
Check out the other contest soapboxes for cool photos and comments. Simply amazing!
