Dick, I use 3 monitors, 2 x 24 and 1 x 20".  As I do RTTY, I run n1mm with 4 parallel decoders per radio and the decoders to take space.

The third monitor runs real time propagation modeling via DX Atlas + HamCap + IonoProbe along with a browser showing cqcontest.ru for realtime contest scoring.

The displays will be side-by-side and supporting all of the contesting/logging/propagation windows driven by one central contesting computer.  I could be talked into having two computers--one for each display--but I would appreciate if that discussion were held another day.

Has experience shown that one particular screen size and/or aspect radio to be better than another in this application?  I am partial to Samsung, but I can be talked out of that too if appropriate.
