Steve,I prefer to have everything separated.Two computers and two keyboards, 
two set of BPFs etc.,It is more expensive but much easier for station setup 
when every Radio is fully independent.Personally, it was easier for me to 
handle two radios using two keyboards with less mistakes made and this was a 
start point for consideration.I used N1MM  in Multi-Op mode with a Network 
between radios despite the fact I am in SO2R category.N1MM prevents TX on the 
2nd radio if the 1st one in TX mode as well for Multi-Op category, so I do not 
need extra hardware to be used.I only had interlock in my 2x6 antenna switch to 
prevent connection both radios to the same antenna.Please, do not forget to 
change Multi-Op to SO in your log file after the contest :)PavelVA6AM

Subject: [CQ-Contest] SO2R Two Keyboard

Hey all:

One of the things we plan to do @ KL7RA in the near future is set up a
dedicated SO2R position. I was about to order computer, monitors etc. for
that position when I remembered (I think it was Andy N2NT) discussing the
advantages of dual keyboard vs. Single Keyboard SO2R at Contest U a couple
of years back. Question for the folks on this list who do that, how have
you set things up hardware-wise, ergonomics, (our plan was to standardize
the layout of all operating positions, but perhaps we might want different
dimensions for this) etc. N1MM+ and WinTest both support it, so I imagine
that part is easy, and we'll be using a MK2R+ as a SO2R
