Apparently this in reference to my comments. I doubt a stereo (three conductor) plug will short any signal to ground when plugged into a properly wired stereo jack. A mono (two conductor plug) will short the ring contact in a stereo jack to ground and not just momentarily. In my radios any stereo jack in use for output has it's ring connector *ignored*. Nothing is connected there to short to ground even though the sleeve on the mono plug (grounded) is connected to the ring contact inside the stereo jack. I hope that was wordy enough to be clear.
As stated, I do not expect to listen to any stereo on the HF bands and see no point in wiring that contact in the jack. If you bought stereo cans well that is your own personal problem. Put those with your stereo set and use mono on your communications radios. Or listen in one ear. Or rewire the cans as appropriate. I have been down the one ear route when the only thing handy was stereo cans. Somehow I actually survived that until I could get my hands on the mono cans.
