NT9K Key Number 9This is one of Bill NT9K's beautiful home-built sideswiper keys. Sideswiper keys (sometimes known as "Cootie" keys from a name used by manufacturers in the 1920s) are connected as a straight key (i.e. no electronic keyer is used).
For example, to form a letter G (dah dah dit):
- Move the paddle to the left to send the first dah.
- Move the paddle to the right to send the second dah.
- Move the paddle to the left to send the dit.
