Why The Snobory With Audio Echo On The Ham Bands? I recently had a contact with a friend on 2 meters who was using a Sadeta Echo Master Plus Classic microphone with a small amount of echo on (no roger beep), I personally I thought it sounded very nice and grand as he had the delay and level set just right (subtle). As I complemented him on his audio he returned and told me he had suffered A LOT of abuse from amateurs (some of which was in breach of our licensing regulations due to the foal language). He was even told that they would not speak to him if he was using that mic! Now my question is, Why? Why is echo so bad (IF ITS USED PROPERLY)? Some say it creates distortion to the signal and make the audio too wide. If this s true then why are some opp-orators using Lots of expensive studio grade equipment that really dose widen your audio so to carry more depth? This very deep Basie audio can be a problem on busy/ narrow HF bands but again I don't have a problem with it really. If very wide audio is kind of excepted, then why isn't ECHO??? YOUR THOUGHTS PLEASE TO HELP ME UNDERSTAND.
