A comment. There are a few fusion repeaters in FM16UV. When those are activated, I can pick them up way way way further than if activated in analog mode. That narrow 12.5 kHz error corrected signal seems to have a better punch in many situations. My node is a good example of that too. It puts out only 20mW...but with the right antenna Is can be used a mile away. I agree with you, many function with analog just fine. However, I think there is some application of digital that goes unlooked. Getting mobile range with a 5w HT is possible since digital was added. It’s not like the mode is useless. As for SSB...that was a question about the THD74’s Rx range. Using it as a spare ear could be handy.
