Upcoming non-contest ,contests ?
which came first, the non-contest or the contest ? ?

Straight Key Night
Every day is a good day to send CW, but January 1 is reserved for Straight Key Night. Enjoy CW as it has been sent and enjoyed since the earliest days of Amateur Radio

This 24-hour event is not a contest; rather it is a day dedicated to celebrating our CW heritage. Participants are encouraged to get on the air and simply make enjoyable, conversational CW QSOs. The use of straight keys or bugs to send CW is preferred. There are no points scored and all who participate are winners.

Inaugural “Green Keys Night” Set for January 1“Green Keys Night” — an event aimed at promoting the restoration and use of vintage mechanical teleprinters — will take place on January 1, 2019 (UTC),  “Green keys” refers to the color of the keys on Teletype Corporation machines. Participants are encouraged to get on the air and enjoy making casual contacts on RTTY.

“The use of mechanical teleprinters is preferred, or simply get on the air with the oldest equipment you can scrape together,”  “Real heavy-metal teletypes to be sure, but if that isn't available, analog hardware modems, VT100 terminals, pre-Windows computers, etc. And vacuum tubes. And maybe fire up that boatanchor rig that never gets enough air time.”

KØIP says,  I'm ready ..my Teletype model 28 is tuned and ready..  see you in the newyear.
