Straight Key Night
January 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This 24-hour event is not really a contest, but instead just a day dedicated to celebrating Ham Radio’s CW heritage.
Participants are encouraged to get on the air and simply make enjoyable, conversational CW QSOs. The use of straight keys or bugs to send CW is preferred. There are no points scored and all who participate are winners.
Dates and Times: Straight Key Night is held every January 1 from 0000 UTC through 2359 UTC.
Bands: All authorized Amateur frequencies, but activity has traditionally been centered on the HF bands.
