Absolutely gorgeous! I "accidentally" collect keys. Not a ton of them, but several. Recently been working with my Cootie on the air, but have to hold it in my left hand and use my right to send. It's a bit light on its feet! I would love to build a Cootie....maybe some day. Would love to find a source for heavy brass.
Are you sure if it weren't for a dit there would be no dah! Hmmmm...maybe. hihi.
