I have a very nearly perfect El-Key keyer paddle that is superfluous to
my needs.  The El-Key, you may know, was either the first or second
commercially-made keyer paddle introduced to the ham market, back in
1960. Designed by Bob, W2AYJ, it was sold by Poucel Electronics of
Babylon, NY, for only about two years.  Very few remain, and most of
those that do have seem many better days.  This one hasn't!  It is
near-mint.  Black base and chrome uppers are still bright and shiny, and
the El-Key label like new.  Of course it works perfectly, with the
smooth action for which it was famous.  $195 + $5 to ship firm, sorry no
trades.  Tks es 73!  Jan N0JR
