EUROPE DUAL LAVER PADDLE
A new state-of-the-art cw key.
CT EUROPE is a dual lever (IAMBIC PADLLE). Plated edition. Has a very unusual design - three hoops on a classic pillbox base. The spring tension and contact spacing for each lever can be adjusted individually with the knurled screws. Bearing tension is adjustable but won't normally need it. The feel of this paddle is extremely crisp and precise. The CT Europe dual paddle has machined coin silver contacts, plexiglass fingerpieces, and an attached cable with 1/8" plug and 1/8" to 1/4" adaptor.
Unique individual serial number (S/N 148 UA 2006) and individualy hand crafted,
finished and packed. This paddles are made by UT7CT and available
in Europe from M0EDX on his eBay store.The CT EUROPE is a fine looking
key but they are easily scratched. Don't try to polish it, NEVER.
It comes complete with 3,5mm and 6,3mm connectors ready to plug
into a transciever jack keyer.
However my CT key required re-wiring to get the "dots"
on the left side and the "dashes" on the right.
Mainly it makes quite a job transmiting....VERY NICE!

it has 3 levels, the top one being a small rubber pad, making it feel "ergonomically
comfortable" when sending...

In this case the standard J-37 is on a rectangular base stamped with a white "J-43" on the left side and a large toggle switch on the right side. The toggle switch is marked "OPEN" at the back and "CLOSED" at the front. The J-43 also has an additional binding post, marked "RELAY", and a small metal wicket mounted on the right rear of the base.

The two main key contacts are silver coated.
These keys were manufactured in the former USSR, for the Soviet army up

all be adjusted.
