I agree with WS4B. If they are looking for great sounding audio why mess with SSB at all. Just run AM and enjoy. You don't have to have thousands of dollars of extra equipment either. I don't see how messing with a mode designed for low bandwith effcient transmissions, like SSB, makes much sense. Personally I've never had a problem with the audio on SSB, because I understand it is designed to be more effcient than AM. I love the way AM sounds though, but trying to force that kind of audio quality into SSB signal seems almost counter productive to the reason the mode exists. Maybe I'm wrong, but to me AM seems a much better route to go than ESSB.
