How about another batch of official straight key ?

The last SKCC key was a fine long-arm style straight key - of amazing operational design. Sadly, it is no longer in production and the company holding the production rights appears to have little interest in producing same again. I am sure it is a profit related business decision - after-all, CW is a niche market and straight keys are only a small part of that niche.

Perhaps a more solid manufacturer, with a history in Morse code related equipment production, could be successfully approached. Vibroplex comes to mind.

Vibroplex has a recent history of producing some mighty fine looking keys of top-notch operation, yet nostalgic appearing. Personally, I am really impressed with beautiful black bases with gold pin-stripping.

I'd snap up an SKCC version of that 100th Anniversary Vibroplex Original in a heartbeat.

I would be interested. The price of the previous key was good. There have been several key manufacturers stop production recently. Perhaps one of them could be persuaded to donate the rights to one of their now unavailable designs?
