    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 .
