These compressed MP3 sound files have been recorded at VE6WZ directly from the FT-1000d or IC-756ProII to the sound board on the PC. 

File names: Call, Band, YR/MO/DD.  LP= Long path (usually my morning) SP= Short Path (usually my evening)

Click the file and your sound player should be able to play them.

If possible use headphones to improve the copy....these recordings are mostly of difficult, lowband QSO's which are often just at the edge of readability.....some signals are very light, but  mostly all Q-5.....afterall...nobody works 80 or 160 without they?
