Re: Annoying things on PSK


"If some one doesn't tell you about what your doing wrong you will never know that your wrong."
Very well put Ian, I feel the same way....since I can't see my own signal, I have to rely on  my
equipment indications and other folks to keep me in line.

Must admit I'm new to psk but did a lot of reading before sending my first cq call

I will take any advice given

The one thing I have enjoyed so far on psk is calling cq and getting a response which never seams to happen on Ssb with 50w usually for psk I run about 20w

If some one doesn't tell you about what your doing wrong you will never know that your wrong

I've done some of this "on the air" helping with people who have had wide signals and it's very rewarding when they accept the help.  Maybe that's one way to clean up the bands... one station at a time.  Reminds me of the thing about "no need to thank me, just pass on what you have learned".  If we all help others then it will hopefully spread/

Good point David !

As for the "someone is splattering so I just ignore them" tactic, I

personally don't like that at all. I spent 30 minutes just last night

helping someone that was 500Hz wide get his signal under control and he

was very appreciative. Not only did he have no idea he was doing it, he

also got a system that was running a lot cooler. I made a friend AND

made things better for everyone.

If you want people to learn, you have to guide them. You can't just

assume they will figure it out on their own. We were ALL beginners at

some point, and we ALL had help along the way. Sometimes I think we

forget that in our rants. You serve the radio community much better by

taking a little extra time to help fix the problem, rather than ignore


Now if they decide not to listen... that's a whole different ballgame.

I seriously doubt there are many people out there that are deliberately

trying to splatter, though.
