THE NT9K PRO PUMP IS BACK

Postby WA2WMR » Sat Feb 08, 2014 11:58 pm

Hi Lind,

I'm writing in regards to the post and request you had on the SKCC forum below:

[SNIP] I have one of the NT9K Pro Pump keys and absolutely love it. However, in a number of QSOs, when I have mentioned it, the response was that they wanted to get one but couldn't find it anywhere? The link from SKCC to the producer of the key seems to be gone.
Is this key still being produced? If so, by whom and how does one contact them? [SNIP]

We are going to do a limited run of the Pro-Pump. It will be a different base,(black crinkle coat) and the brass will be a satin finish with a sealant to prevent tarnishing and yellowing. It will have an LnR Key Concepts label but will be the same functioning key as the SKCC Club key.
If you still have people interested you can direct them to me to get on a "pre-list" or have them watch the web page at www.keyconcepts.us and wait for them to go on sale.

Hope all is well with you and you are still having fun with CW.

73 for now,

I just got mine last week from LNR Precision. At the Dayton Hamvention I learned that there were some parts left, enough to make up a few keys. Larry made one up for me and mailed it a week or so later.

I've only been (re)licensed and active for a year so missed out on the introduction of the NT9K Pro Pump 5 years ago. So I'm really grateful to LNR for this reintroduction.

The key operates smoothly despite, or maybe because of, its huge size. in contrast to the J-38 I learned on in the mid 1950s, it takes less effort to keep up a 20 wpm pace in a QSO.
