How to Keep Your CW Paddle in Place

Some hams with nice radio tables find that their CW operations tend to move the paddle around a bit. Chasing the paddle during a contest can be aggravating as all heck!

DX Engineering PaddlePads are the perfect way to keep your CW paddle in place. These friction pads are soft, pliable and washable.

DX Engineering PaddlePadsDX Engineering offers PaddlePads in two sizes to accommodate everything from tiny, lightweight paddles to the large, heavy paddles of today and yesteryear. The large pad is about 5-3/4 inches across and 7-1/2 inches deep. The smaller pad is 3-3/4 inches wide and 5-7/8 inches deep. Both pads are about 1/16 of an inch thick!

PaddlePads have many other uses! Use them in your vehicles to keep items on the dash in place. Use them on your boat to keep glasses and mugs where you want them. They’re also super for keeping desktop drop-in radio or cordless-phone chargers from moving about. In fact, you may use them on any relatively flat surface to keep almost anything from sliding!
