    The annual ARRL Straight Key Night (SKN[1]) returns on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, January 1, 0000 - 2359 UTC.

    Many hams look forward to SKN as one of the highlights of their operating year. It's not a contest, so there's no need for quick exchanges. All you need is your favorite straight key or bug. Many participants dust off vintage radios and keys and put them back into service each year, just for SKN. However, all hand keys, regardless of age, are welcome.

    The number of contacts you make is not important. The reward is meeting many new friends as you get together on the air. Send[2] a list of stations contacted and any SKN stories and photos, along with your votes for Best Fist and Most Interesting QSO, before January 31, 2022.
