I see (and hear) some stations transmitting equalized SSB audio. Much of this audio has it's bass response equalized by many DB to 'sound better'. It is almost comical to watch someone adjust his transmit audio to please everyone. I about fell out of my chair the other evening watching grown Men going crazy, trying in vain to make SSB sound like FM, or even AM. They were asking for opinions about how they sounded, so I told a few of them they sounded like Sugar Hotel India Tango, and they did. But I listen sometimes on professional studio monitor speakers that are accurate. I can hear the hyped up bass EQ. It is my opinion these guys obsessed with 'high quality audio' might do better to concentrate on transmitting a FLAT audio signal, and let the guy on the OTHER end apply the EQ. One never knows what speaker another station is listening to you on, or the acoustics of someones room. To adjust your transmitted audio signal to compensate for the 'shortcomings' in the receiving station will make you sound terrible on receiving stations w/o those 'shortcomings'. Think about it ? FM Stations don't as a rule hype up bass and treble to compensate for those listening in automobiles. To do so will make them sound funny to those listening at home, on full range speakers. OK, I know it will not be as much fun as " Ok, here is the HEIL Mic, now here is the MC 50 Mic, now here is the Tube Ribbon Mic " Those conversations will be replaced by " I gave you a 3db bump at 125k and 2db cut at 2.5K to make your received audio sound better on my TS 850 with a stock speaker"
