I made a nice enhancement to the station. I had an old Dunestar audio mixer in my drawer. It’s a neat little device that takes audio from two radios and then gives you the ability to mix the audio to your liking. One or the other radio only, both radios and any mix of audio therein. It’s a holdover from when I was building an SO2R operation. But right now my plans aren’t for this kind of contest operating.
But – I’ve got another use for it. I like to listen in on various nets and pileups and watch TV at the same time. Voila – this mixer is perfect! Another great application from my RTTY contesting days, is to tune RTTY and watch movies at the same time.
Very useful addition to this station.
