K3Y, the Straight Key Century Club's annual January celebration, commemorates the club's founding following the American Radio Relay League's Straight Key Night in January 2006. A small group of participants wanted to extend the fun of SKN. The SKCC is the result.
The on-air party is open to members and non-members alike. It runs from 00:00 UTC Jan. 2, 2016, to 23:59 UTC Jan. 31, 2016. It's a great time to introduce others to the joys of hand-crafted Morse code using straight keys, bugs, and side swipers.
This year we'll be fielding K3Y operators in each of the 10 US call areas, plus KH6, KL7 and KP4, along with specially scheduled stations in each of six IARU continental regions. Your QSOs with event operators in all these 19 areas will be tabulated in the Statistics section and can be confirmed with a K3Y QSL card and Sweep Certificate.
It's also a great time to make progress toward SKCC operating awards, in addition to the participation certificate you can earn for contacting K3Y stations. Any QSO with a K3Y station can be used toward club awards, as long as the award application reflects both stations' normal call signs.
Special QSL cards also will be available after the event ends to serve as a record of the K3Y stations you've contacted.
