Electronics 1958 - 2000
hard on the heels of the TW MagPad in 2010, it would seem,
from comments received by TW, that there was still a demand for
a 'sideswiper' key, hence the TWanger was designed and developed by Tom Withers G3HGE, a CW operator for over
60 years and the driving force behind TW Electronics Ltd.
TWanger, TW's version of a sideswiper, was well received by the
'experts' with a small number of them in use in the UK,
Europe and the USA. The Twanger was very quiet in operation
due to the mounting of the moving contacts on silver plated, high
tensile brass strips. Due to it being a specialist item no stocks
were kept, the TWanger was only made 'to order' by arrangement
