    1.  Amateur radio is still alive and kick’n. I’m hoping to upgrade to my (US) General-class license soon, and talk to folks on more popular bands than my Technician license will allow. Anyone DIYing morse keyers?

          1.  Not!  I gave away all my morse keys (including a very fast sideways job) to the seaman’s center and to a local school.  Except one type specimen that I will probably hack into a computer mouse.
