Thank you for your reply.  I've been going to a great audiologist for several years and I'm now on my second set of hearing aids.  The ones I'm now using are mutlti-channel and the frequency response curve can be altered with his computer.  I am rapidly running out of headroom on the hearing aids that I am using and I'm using this post to get suggestions from anyone who wishes to comment.  Spending another $3 or 4Kbucks for more powerful hearing aids is going to be rough.

I received a wonderful gift from one of you.  It is a multi-channel stero EQ board!  I'm going to hook it up to either my amplifer.  I'm hoping to use external speakers with this setup at least for a while. Hopefully this will get me away from the stereo headphones and the problems it creates.  Seems that one problem is always solved but creates one or more to take it's place.

The game plan is to put off losing the use of SSB for as long as possible.  I understand that I eventually be backed to CW and then perhaps nothing but intend to go down fighting!  Ham radio has been a wonderful hobby for 54 years now and I have no intention of giving it up.


Many thanks to all of you who have offered suggestions here on eHam.com forum.

Good Luck with the project. I hope you come up with a combination that solves (at least for a while) your hearing problems.
