Just put a new 2980 on the air over the weekend. I like it but after years of running Kenwood TM-281 radios people complained about my audio. When asked what was wrong, they said I sounded congested, like I had a clothespin on my nose, it’s just not good. When pressed they said not distorted, it was clear just not as good as in the past. Has anyone else noticed this? My guess is that Yaesu has narrowed up the audio frequency response much like many of the commercial manufacturers do.
