If you demand FM quality or even extremely high quality AM audio in order to make a contact and understand
what someone is saying, or to enjoy a qso, then, personally, I think youre in the wrong hobby.
I'm in the hobby to make contacts and, yes, to chew the rag.  But I dont need studio or FM quality audio
to understand what someone is telling me about their station or where they live or other parts of a QSO.
What's next ... a specially designed shack with soundproofing on the walls like our recording studios to prevent
echos and other things we used to do in radio station sound rooms?
Again ...  just MHO.  I freely admit, different strokes for different folks.    I'd rather spend the money on a good
amp and antenna system instead of on a thousand dollar Sennheiser mic, audio processors, and things like that.
But ... tha's just me .    HI HI
