You've gotta feel for those finals. But goes to show how well it works with some tweaking I could drag the guys on 7.185 out, just.
But again thanks to FRS for a wonderful product that allows us to see the clean and the not so clean.
So, the minimum "necessary" bandwidth is often a lot wider that what some like to believe as 2.7KC.
Of course, in a contest situation, it is best to stay at 3KC or less to pack more people into the band, otherwise it is unnecessary to limit one's self in an otherwise empty band.
Its great to see how wide and distorted these people are, but don't try telling them...
You will probably get a lecture and abuse or worse about how they consider SDR radios
So sad. Quality will always succeed..... As will FlexRadio !!
From a Believer
I thot for sure he would like to be aware of it, so I did a screen shot and sent it to him, with just the comment "an interesting observation". Not trying to be or sound 'smart' about it.
I had sent it as an attachment the first time (zipped format) and he replied that he was unable to open it. The second time I just pasted the picture to the email. Funny, I got no reply at all.
The thing that stood out about this situation, was not that he was so wide, or that he did not reply, but how many people he talked to during the times I was listening, who told him how great his audio was!
