About Theodore Roosevelt McElroy

    Ted McElroy was highly proficient at both American and International Morse
    code. Later, he began to manufacture straight keys and semi-automatic bugs.
    Many of his designs feature the signature "teardrop" shaped base, shown
    in the 1930 era bug below.

    We highly recommend visiting Neal's K5RW McElroy Page for extensive
    historical information.
