THANET ELECTRONICS, Herne Bay (Now Icom UK) CANTERBURY KEY.
The straight key "Canterbury" model. Late 70's
Lovely key this one. With its springy contact strip it has a nice operating feel, and is well made indeed. Sold by Thanet Electronics in the late 70's. Very few made so rare. Thanks go to John / GM4GZQ for identifying this key and providing details etc..
THANET ELECTRONICS SEMI-AUTOMATIC BUG KEY.
Late 70's. I do not know the model of this impressive bug key, could it perhaps be a "Canterbury Bug Key" ? Base dimensions of 6" by 3 & 1/2" (152mm x 90mm) and weighs 1.7k. Even fewer made of these grand bug keys, so rare indeed !
