The late Bob Merriam, W1NTE told me when I was sending on this key that I was the fastest sender he had ever heard on it. There is something about the way this key interfaces with the body that makes the key lever an extension of the hand and with a motion just like shaking hands vigorously, the sending is effortless. Unfortunately no one makes such a key, but it’s the very best I’ve ever used in my 55 years of Morse operation.
Read Bob’s obituary for an interesting and informative reading of one of our radio pioneers. https://eastgreenwichnews.com/obituary-robert-w-merriam-95/
