I will again be streaming live audio from my station during the CQ WW Phone
contest this coming weekend.  I will be doing a less serious single op all
band effort so you may find things quiet at times, but will try to put in as
many hours as I can.

Audio will stream in stereo exactly the same as what I am hearing in the
headphones.  Left radio on left ear and right radio on right ear.  Listening
with headphones will give you the true SO2R experience.  Note, most of the
contest I am listening with both ears on the same radio.

You can reach the stream by visiting http://www.k5zd.com/live

You can use any audio player, but best results seem to happen when using
Real Audio Player.   If you use Windows Media Player, be prepared for a long
buffer period before you start to hear audio.  Regardless of what player you
use, expect the audio stream to lag real-time by 15 to 60 seconds.

I will also be recording the full contest and hope to make the recording
available from my web site after the contest.  So don't worry, you can
always come back then and hear how loud you were!

The audio streaming is made possible by Dave Pascoe, KM3T, and the resources
of his live Air Traffic Control site www.liveatc.net.

A clear frequency is always appreciated!  :)

Randy, K5ZD
