Ron, KU7Y, asked: 
> What is a good, inexpensive headset?
> I don't do enough SSB to warrant spending the money to buy a 
> good Heil.  The old Telex that I have has too many 
> problems.... too heavy, hurts the ears after wearing for a 
> little while, the plug for the cable from the headset to the 
> rig tries to fall out and etc.  I did have a Heil element 
> that I put in the mic so it sounds good.  But I would like to 
> replace it.
> I need 2 ear pieces, do not need noise canceling as the shack 
> is quiet.  It will be used with my 1000MP and I might also 
> make an adaptor to use it with the FT100 while in Idaho also.
> Also wondering if anyone uses wireless headsets.....
> Any ideas are welcome.
> OK, back in my hole,
