- For SO2R, use low pitch (400 Hz) in the left radio ear, and high pitch
(700 Hz) in the right radio ear. This helps your brain separate the two
- For SO2R, turn down monitor volume for transmitted signal to 10volume of ``listening on second radio'' audio. It's
helpful to hear your transmitted signal, if only barely.
- Success equals preparation and opportunity. Opportunity is a function
- Save time and energy whenever possible. If you make 3000 QSOs and call
CQ 5000 times in a full weekend, then shortening the average exchange by
one character will save you 8000 characters, or 1600 ``words,''
which is 53 minutes at 30 WPM.
- Send the exchange only once. Get the station's call right the
first time. If you miss it, both you and he will resend it, extending the
QSO length by 2X.
