Probably to the same place(s) as the members themselves.

Personally, my favoured theory is alien abduction.

Fifty five plus years in radio.........MN and Amateur........Never tried using a side swiper, until now. Just made a couple of keys. One mechanical, the other touch..It's like being born again....Practice makes perfect(I hope)

Slow at the Mo..........Made the keys within the last month....Compared to the standard Marconi/Iambic, it really is a new world....I need practice....Keep thinking I'm still using the iambic........lol.....It will come? Hopefully.....Back to practice on my new toy.

One of the guys who might have followed your enlightening description of morse keys various, sadly died last year (or was it the year before? - my memory plays tricks on me these days, all down to Einsteins Toilet Paper Theory of Relativity).

Too young, big "C"

As for the others, perhaps they are working part time for the Intelligence Services, conducting covert surveillance on the Forum in case we get radicalised! Rolling Eyes  Rolling Eyes  Rolling Eyes

Perhaps Dah could try one of his 'C.Q.' e-mails,asking for members to give the Forum a try? Miracles can happen,they tell me.

Hi Don, Perhaps you and Jack can mention that, the Forum welcomes all members, when you attend the re-union 2016...Just a thought! Regards Ray

Been there, done that, got the Tee shirt and the battle scars (both of us) at every Reunion since I first encountered the Forum and the website.

"And some fell on stony ground"

Encore, deja vu!

Mais, plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose

Hmm, maybe we should stop with the French, firstly my French, certainly my written French is probably not up to it any more and secondly I was chastised on the old forum for using too much Latin!! (e.g. my signature below) - Quelle domage Very Happy  Very Happy
