    Well, I learned something at the doctor's office before I moved to my current QTH. He mentioned there were large ear wax deposits in my ears. Apparently I inherited that from my mother's side of the family as she had that problem to. So before I get back on HF, I need to clean my ears out. The things I learn as I grow older and older.

    I have to do that occasionally. I hear that 50% water diluted 3% hydrogen peroxide solution will slowly dissolve the wax, or I found
    a solution at the drug counter. Takes a few days, but works.

    My test: Compare phone dial tone in each ear. Should sound the same.

    I have high frequency loss too but don't know how much. Agree that it's tiring work pulling words out of noise sometime. I use some lower-end in ear monitors (Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 pros) and the two audio equalizers in my Peavy mixer to cut 24dB at the low and high ends and boost the vocal range 3-6db as needed.

    Would probably be cheaper to just get a DSP and a good speaker but I already had the mixer and headphones. :) Good luck!
