    Strays Add a Stray!
    I understand that there is a way to change the PL audio level on the Yaesu FT-1500M from the front panel. Does anyone know the procedure? kbruehl@athenet.net

    Should Contests Limit Their Band Use?
    A contributor asks; "It seems like all I hear is 'CQ Contest!' This is a hobby for everyone to enjoy, so shouldn't contests limit their band use to certain segments and not just leave the WARC bands free during contests? What if there was an emergency; how would anyone hear a distress call over 'CQ Contest! CQ Contest!'?"
