I enjoy a good sounding AM signal as much as other people and although I don't care to run that mode, I listen in sometimes. Just checking out 40M watching signals on the band scope. One fellow has a signal that is literally 18 KHz wide on voice peaks and the other stations are much less wide, about normal that you would expect. And no he is not so close he is overloading me or something. This sort of thing will not gain any allies from other users on the band. So I don't know if he cannot adjust his radio correctly, or if he is a I want to be a hi fi broadcaster, standards be damned, type. Is there ever any technical critique on these roundtables or is that a taboo subject? BTW I dislike the oddballs that run software controlled radios so they can make an SSB signal 10 KHz wide, too.
