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. http://www.arrl.org/contests/soapbox/index.html?con_id=149&call=&ofst=80
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 http://www.arrl.org/contests/rules/2008/skn.html
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!
