                       1995 NCJ NORTH AMERICAN QSO PARTY
I was surprised more people didn't ask for moves. It was fun bouncing all the
way thru the spectrum with those few who did. I've never done even close to a
full blown effort in this test but I'm a gonna one of these times. As Jeff
QSY'd me from 80 to 40 t o 20 we worked no problem, I knew 10 had been open all
day but thought it was about played out. We went to 15 and no problem and then
made it easily on 10. Made me think we could have made it on 6 and possibly 2
as well (well maybe). I tuned the band afte r we worked on 10 and then tuned on
15 and nary a signal could be heard. BUT they were open in some directions.

Subject: Stereo Headphones?
Message-ID: <199508070041.RAA15592 at>

Several years ago I bought a few boxes full of mono headphones from
the local school district for a dollar a box.  I took out the bad ones
and sold the rest at hamfests for $1 per set, saving one set for myself.
These are the type that are hooked together with about 6 kids listening
to the same thing.  Several teachers and church directors contacted me
about getting some junction boxes and headphones.  These folks got very
reduced prices!  Anyway, that is what I use, old school headphones.

I am now going to 2-radio operation and I need a new set of stereo 
headphones so I can listen to A/B, A/A, B/B with the switch called
out by AB6FO in his article in NCJ a couple years ago (C&K Components
1-800-635-5936 p/n #7211P1YZQE).  The switch is still avaailable and
I am getting a sample any day.  What is a good set of headphones for
contest operation?
