I was not in the SS but was listening from time to time and heard some of
the multi tone signals.  If I had not seen this thread I would not have
known why they sounded so bizarre.

Gah!  I wish they didn't.  I suppose this could explain the number of CW 
signals heard in this weekend's SS contest that sound like they are 
transmitting four "tones" at once.  Same for those PSK and AFSK folks who 
have too much mic gain dialed in.

Back to cathode-keying my 6L6.. :)
