I don't think recordings of QSO's would be as useful as pre-agreed upon
text, mainly because during the deep fades and/or QRN and QRM you would
not know for sure what was actually sent, and therefore would not know
if it were decoded right.
I would be willing to catalog the recordings and post them on a web site
for all to download and use.
If anyone is interested in sending me some text, email me and we'll set
up some schedules.
