Vibroplex Standard Straight Key
This key was my main station key for my first couple of years in amateur radio. A great looking key with crisp yet solid action. I have logged several hundred radio telegraphy contacts using this fine instrument which is second only in my key collection to the NT9K Pro Pump long lever key.
The Vibroplex straight key is a unique design based on modified components taken from the semi-automatic key line. It is an interesting fact that the Vibroplex Company did not introduce a straight key until nearly 100 years into it's existence. This is not surprising as the mainstay Vibroplex keys are semi-automatic or "bug" keys. Production first began in 1996 and continues today catering solely to the amateur market.
