A contest first? A new level of transparent contesting? 

We've all seen webcams from various stations, but wouldn't it be more
interesting if you could hear what the ops were hearing in their headphones?
This weekend in CQ WW Phone you can.

KM3T will be operating K5ZD in a serious Single Operator All Band effort
durign CQWW this weekend.  As a first for radio contesting (at least that
Dave and I are aware of), we are going to stream the audio from his
headphones out to the Internet.  This will be a full blown SO2R effort and
the stream will be in stereo, so you hear exactly what he is hearing. If you
have some time during the weekend and are near a web browser, you may want
to listen in for awhile.

To access the stream go to http://www.k5zd.com/live

Look for the streaming to start a few hours before the contest (and possibly
before then during testing on Wed-Fri).

Interested in any and all comments.

PS - Sorry, no web cam or real-time score reporting.  Audio only. :)
