The 2012 Morse Express Christmas Key
In Celebration of the Season...
Morse Express has commissioned its twelfth annual Christmas Key.
Our 2012 Christmas Key is a fully functional miniature telegraph key
made by GHD Telegraph Key in Sendai City Japan. It incorporates
traditional Japanese craftsmanship with GHD's impeccable engineering
In keeping with GHD's larger keys, the Morse Express 2012 Christmas
Key is fully adjustable, with precision pin bearings at the
trunnion, miniature binding posts, comfortable knob, and perfect
balance. The contacts are hard-silver and the distinctive oval base
is finished in satin chrome. The knob is hand-turned mahogany, and
there are four small anti-skid rubber feet on the bottom. GHD's
Toshihiko Ujiie uses both modern and traditional techniques to
produce a miniature key that will be equally at home in the radio
shack, in the field, or decorating a Christmas tree.
According to Marshall Emm (N1FN), "the Christmas keys have always
been a labor of love for me, and my first priority has always been
usability. GHD has brought considerable expertise to the manufacture
of the Christmas keys, and the 2012 key is a little gem." The
2012 Christmas Key measures 2" by 1-1/8" at the base and it weighs
two and a half ounces. Each key has a label with "Christmas
2012" and a unique serial number in the limited edition of 150
keys. The 2012 Christmas key will add something special to
straight key operations through the Holiday Season and on Straight
