ARLX016 ARRL Staffers to be On the Air from W1AW for Straight Key
Night

Members of the ARRL Headquarters staff will put W1AW on the air for
Straight Key Night (SKN). Set some time aside on New Year’s Eve and
New Year’s Day to take part in this annual ARRL tradition.

Information on Straight Key Night can be found at,
http://www.arrl.org/straight-key-night .

SKN begins at 0000 UTC on January 1, 2021 (New Year’s Eve in US time
zones) and wraps up at 2359 UTC. Not a contest, SKN is dedicated to
celebrating amateur radio’s Morse code heritage. Bring out the
brass, get on the air, and enjoy casual CW contacts, preferably
using a straight key (hand key) or a semi-automatic key (bug).
Activity traditionally centers on CW segments in the HF bands (W1AW
will focus on 80, 40, and 20 meters).

Submit via email your SKN list of stations contacted and your votes
for “Best Fist” and “Most Interesting QSO” by January 31 to,
straightkey@arrl.org .
