Hi all...

I have heard good SSB audio in years past...  anyone remember the old phasing 
rigs?  They didn't sound too bad...

I can't listen to any SSB too long these days...  I get a tearing sound in my 
ears...  most likely from standing beside too many guitar amplifiers from the 
60's on up...  <heh>
