I call it the Rush Limbaugh Syndrome
. It is a compulsion, like many others we see that manifest in ham radio. However, sometimes these driven hobbyist invent advancements that are useful to the ham radio community as a whole. Voice processing is not all bad, within the parameters that produce improved intelligibility at the receiving end. Many manufacturers are now including such features in ham transceivers.
How is that related to The Mother Of All Politically Conservative Talkers? Sorry, but even though I'm a registered Democrat & religiously watch MSNBC, I fail to see the connection
What these amateur "broadcasters" don't realize is that their efforts may be limiting their range and at the end of their now shorter coverage area, they still sound like static. Their money would have been better spent installing an improved antenna system!
What drives that is the mental thinking that an HT sending a signal out to a repeater will somehow get its owners voice out to the world in crystal clear audio REGARDLESS OF THE SURROUNDINGS & TERRAIN
& that's just simply not true. Even D-STAR users can't make claims to the contrary (Though ya gotta give 'em credit for trying)
