You know .. I worked in broadcast radio for over 30  years.   I am still trying to figure out WHY so many
ham operators insist on having or are so enamored with having broadcast quality audio on their rigs, whether
new rigs or boatanchors.
If someone wants to be in broadcast radio, go into broadcast radio.  We arent shortwave broadcasters or
commercial broadcasters.   We're hobbyists with the goal being to communicate with each other, not to broadcast
symphony orchestras or the latest rock and roll.
I'm not complaining ....   I'm just wondering and commenting.   The motivation is a real puzzler....
