hearing aids with kenwood ts590s WA1HEW on 23/3/17
This reply may be too late, but I just saw the question. I have Widex hearing aids and they are Bluetooth enabled. I purchased from Widex a device that plugs into any headphone socket (transceiver, iPhone, etc) and sends the audio directly to the hearing aids. Viola, wireless headphones. Ron Gove, W1GOV

Thanks Bob. I've been searching google, feel stupid for not checking the ARRL periodicals.

one more thing. My original call sign was KM4LFL. We must have been licensed very close to each other.

Looks like no one has ever answered your question. I am a relatively new ham (since June 2015) and most of my QSOs have been with net control operators. I find very few Hams actually calling CQ unless it is a foreign station who has pile up and no one can get through. In my naive opinion a QSO is a contact with an other ham. Period. Net or no net. I have sent QSL cards to all my NCO contacts and get QSLs in return with a pleasant thank you. Amateur radio is supposed to be fun; keep it that way.

Maybe this isn't the correct forum but I'll leave that to the moderators. I'd like to build a "Go Box" that will house an IC 7000, an LDG 7000 tuner and an MFJ power supply. I can't believe that I am the only ham with this configuration and a need for portable operation (RV-ing to be explicit). So if some one has done this, perhaps even written a construction article I'd love to see it. No need for me to reinvent the wheel if other amateurs have done it before. thanks
