      Listen for K1Y, the Straight Key Century Club Special Event callsign
      starting during SKN and working throughout the month from each call
      district. SKN marks the first anniversary of SKCC.

      Also, please submit your entries for SKN to the ARRL. Last year they
      reported they broke a record with only 300+ contacts. We need to blow the
      roof off that record this year!

      Don't forget that New Year's Eve has a tradition of saying good-bye to the
      old year with nostalgia. For radio operators that means older mechanical
      keys and equipment In addition to those using straight keys you will find
      many using antique bugs.

      If you are so inclined, look for bug activity around 14.025, 7.025, and
      3.525.

      Have fun. That's what it is all about.

          Fred, thanks so much for those frequencies!

          I've never operated SKN before, and I had imagined just
          tuning around to see who I could find. Having set frequencies should
          make it a lot easier.

          I plan to use my 1956 Presentation and perhaps my new LTA
          SKCC key, if it arrives in time. That's starting to look doubtful --
          DHL says it's been in Aurora, Colorado for a week!.
