Morse key for equipment unknown

Your comments:

  • This key still has some popularity in the HAM radio world today. It is often refered to as the Siemens key although it has been made by other manufacturers as well.

    There exists an allied intelligence report about this key. It concludes that the design is solid but not particularly special. It also wonders where the Germans found the rubber for the foot.

  • This is a Baumuster T1 Morse key mainly used during WWII by German Luftwaffe in ground stations or vehicles. The lighter Baumuster T2 (Lorenz) key was used in airplanes.
