POUNDING A BRASS KEY, Jesse Rogers W4JUU taps out letters in Morse code during Straight Key Night that was held on New Year’s Eve at the Cleveland Amateur Radio Club. Straight Key refers to a common telegraph key developed for early radio communications that is used exclusively one night of the year. Morse code is still widely used in communications despite being removed from amateur radio’s licensing process in February 2007. Watching on are club members Ernie Day K4DAY, center, and Buddy Kimsey WA4NIV.
