Hans, you hit it on the head! Looking at the other end prior to your 
email, solved the problem. apparently, the nut holding the steering 
wheel on(a "Personal" wheel that was on my 67 BGT Special Edition was a 
bit loose and prevented a good ground, hence the "chirping" sound. Found 
that as I try to beep the horn holding the wheel from outside the car I 
accidentally leaned on the wheel to the side, hit the horn button and it 
worked. Released the wheel, chirping only. so I pried off the center 
boss and tightened up a slight bit and, voila, a working horn again.
Thanks to you all,
