[CQ-Contest] Contest recordings needed

I'm looking for contest recordings to try and illustrate good 
operating techniques on both SSB and CW.  I want to excerpt maybe 
30-second snippets to use in the beginnings of articles on running 
and S&P for the Contest Compendium.  This is turning out to be harder 
than I would have thought, because a lot of the exemplary recordings 
out there are either not downloadable for one reason or another, or 
else have technical issues (such as no or low transmit audio, low 
basic level, or distortion).

Please contact me off the reflector if you have something you're 
willing to offer.  Recording length is not an issue (I can make an 
excerpt from any length). I'd appreciate your making sure that the 
recording sounds OK, that both sides can be heard, and that you like 
the technique displayed there.  Also, once the articles are posted, 
please dive in and edit them as you see fit.  That's the whole wiki 
idea - to distill the best input from a lot of people, not just rely 
on the original author.
