Hello Mike,

I don't need any, but am interested in obtaining a spare set if I could find the right ones. I think, believe, the cushions are glued on. Don't try taking them off unless they are shot, you might not have a chance to replace them. I also have a second set of CM500 unused just in case. They are quite inexpensive so why not and good bang for the buck.

73 and Merry Christmas

Hi Dale,

When I first saw your post I took a look at my CM500 and I came away with the thought that the cushions are not removable. Granted I only pulled on them gently. I would be very curious to learn how you make out with replacement cushions. Please post again after you complete the rejuvenation.

Thanks Carl,

This is a new accessory.  I called and ordered it.  I did ask the BAD question as to whether this would update the @#%!% clock.  No answer to that.  Fingers crossed, hi.

Turtle Beach has replacement cushions for about $2 each. And some are the nicer ones that are made of cloth, not the plastic coated stuff. I find the standard cushion that comes with most headsets end up flaking black pieces of plastic after a few years. Just find one that is near the size of your headset. Most cushions are loosely fit in place.

I don't believe those pads are designed to be replaced. The CM500 is a very nice headset for the money, but it is a throw away if you have problems. There may be a way to retrofit another set of pads if you can find some that somewhat fit.

If you find some please post it as I would like to have a spare set.

I have not tried this but there is a Yamaha Service portal where you can inquire about parts. It is here:

Re: [Elecraft_K3] GPS 10 MHz reference

Carl Moreschi
 

Yes, I use it. I have a GPS unit that was a take out from a cell tower. It's a Z3801A and you can find them on the internet. It has a GPS antenna that picks up GPS satellites. It uses them to produce and incredibly accurate 10 mhz reference oscillator. This guarantees my K3 is dead on frequency.

Re: [Elecraft_K3] RE: noise cancellers

Dave R
 

Did you turn off the AGC and back way down on the RF gain? The effect seems very subtle at first, but you will get skilled pretty quickly. It really doesn't matter which antenna is which for receiving (polarity between antennas can be shifted 180 degrees with a pushbutton).


If you want a very quiet urban receive antenna build a full wave loop. dave kd6il

Which Avermedia broadcast video card did you buy? Model number?

I have been working with Tom - author of w4k3 app. He encouraged me to buy an Avermedia broadcast video card. It interfaces with the P3 SVGA output and places the display on one of my two existing monitors. That is how I got around buying a third monitor. He has re-sized the P3 display so as not to consume my entire 19 inch monitor.

Prior to this, the DXL Suites etc filled the two monitors. With w4k3 on monitor one and P3 now on monitor 2, I had to minimize most of the DXL Suites due to the real estate limitations. I left DXView and SC on screen. The rest is minimized but can be brought up off the taskbar with a click. This seems to meet my needs.

I believe this arrangement will also work with N1MM - real estate wise.

Hi Jim,
It would be better if the WIN4K3 developers could scale down the minimum window size even more and let the operator decide how large or small he wants it. The K3 and P3 window takes up way too much space. I used it in the 10M contest and the N1MM window just about made it. I use N3FJP logging software for non-contest operation and I have to go to 3 monitors to see everything at a glance.
