My Swag from the Shelby Hamfest

20150906_132338[1]It’s a Vibroplex Code Warrior Jr., wonderfully sturdy iambic paddle for Morse code (CW), marvelously crafted and a lot heavier than it looks. Love it. I’ve had a Vibroplex “bug” (semi automatic key for over fifty years. This acquisition brings me into the modern age. I got to the hamfest earlier specifically looking for a paddle since I want to get back into CW. I would have been delighted with a cheaper BY-1 or anything else of a lesser ilk than the Code Warrior but I lucked into this find at a price less than a used BY-1, etc. Mighty pleased. Yes!
