Update: This post was originally posted a few days ago which turned out to be prior to this paddle being in-stock in any quantity. CW Morse has some of these online and available for order at time of posting this morning (14 Nov 2022) and will have many more later this week. We’ll post an update on QRPer when their main production run is available.
Many thanks to Timothy who notes that CW Morse has added a new key to their product line: the SP4 POTA/SOTA Mini Morse Code Magnetic Paddle.
This key looks a lot like the N0SA paddle you see in many of my videos because it is designed by N0SA and made by CW Morse!
Here’s the description from CW Morse’s website:

Uses Magnetic Tension And Easily Adjustable With Stainless Steel Contacts.
Great for portable operations, and supplied with 3M Dual Lock Velcro for easy mounting and removal of the paddle from base or anything of your choosing.

Allen wrench that is needed for spacing adjustment is also included with the key.
Adjustments stay put when set, so adjust once and forget about it! 🙂
I have not tried this new paddle yet, but I did know it was in the works. I’m so glad it’s now being offered because I’m a huge fan of both N0SA and CW Morse (disclaimer: CW Morse is a proud sponsor and affiliate of QRPer.com).
The price for the new key is $82.95 without a base or $109.95 with base.
