Common OzarkCon Session

Wacky Toaster Key

Wacky Key Contest

Here's your opportunity to show off your creative skills.  Build a crazy key and enter it into the wacky key contest.   The idea is to build a working key or paddle from anything (like a toaster).  Use your imagination and come up with something off-the-wall.  The crazier the better!

To enter the 2021 Virtual OzarkCon contest, send an email describing your entry to wackykey@ozarkcon.com.

There are only two contest rules:

1. You can't use any parts from a "real" key.  

You must demonstrate the key or paddle by sending some CW.  You can bring your own code practice oscillator or keyer or you can use the one we provide.  Anyway, we have to be able to copy your sending.

This year's judges are Rick - KCØPET, Bryan - KØEMT, and Larry - NØSA and they will select the wackiest key.
Wacky Key Coordinator is Walter K5EST
Prizes will be awarded!
