Again...for 2010!
Array Solutions QSK Master

The Array Solutions QSK-MASTER is a 160-6 meter 2500 watt external QSK switch.  For maximum reliability the QSK-MASTER is relay-based, using a high-speed signal relay for transceiver and bias switching, and a Jennings high current/high speed vacuum relay for amplifier output switching.  This means that the QSK MASTER is essentially lossless, so no optional fan is needed for high duty-cycle operation.  And the QSK-MASTER cannot be damaged by any sudden high SWR event even when operating at maximum power.

Piero and Bruna Begali have once again provided one of their excellent keys - The Begali Simplex Palladium - as a prize for the CW Pileup Competition!

Begali Simplex

begaili simplex

The Simplex is an iambic key with a heavy (1.4 kg or more than 3 pounds) gold or palladium plated base and gold plated components, using long springs for the return force. Like Begali's other keys it is manufactured using NC machinery for absolute precision. Micro-threaded screws are used for all adjustments.  The arms are held by 4 ball bearings that are imbedded in the base, and they are made of a light-weight alloy that provides very low moving mass - this allows excellent responsiveness at high speeds even when set for a very light touch. The contacts are 925/000 silver.  The key comes with a protective dust cover.              For more information, and to see all the other keys and accessories, please visit their fine website: Begali Keys
