Episode #13 - A 112 Year HAM Legacy!
There probably is no other piece of HAM equipment more ubiquitous than the Vibroplex key. For more than a 100 years, hundreds of thousands of Vibroplex keys have been produced and used on ships at sea, by railroads across continents, militaries and countless amateur radio operators. The most well known Vibroplex key being a odd looking contraption called a 'bug'!
Scott Robbins bought Vibroplex in 2009 and spent the past eight years breathing new life into the company while continuing to manufacture the time-tested and much loved keys that have been produced since 1945.
TAKE AWAYS FROM THIS PODCAST:
Learning Morse code is like learning to play a musical instrument. Some people learn a new skill easier and faster than others.
Your ability to learn and copy Morse code has nothing to do with intelligence or how smart you are.
The best way to learn Morse code is to get on the air and practice.
Everybody makes mistakes. Don't let the fear of making a mistake keep you from getting on the air.
Always listen before jumping into a QSO or pile-up.
