No Baofeng policy. USA repeater.

Postby m0lsx » Thu Apr 21, 2016 8:20 pm

This has just come up on a FB amateur radio group.

N4NJJ. Las Vegas
In order to provide the best experience for all operators, our repeater system has a zero tolerance for Baofeng, Wouxon, Retevis, etc. radios. These portables do not have the ability to perform pre-emphasis/de-emphasis, which results in below acceptable audio levels. Users to the system are encouraged to operate a commercial and/or public safety grade portable or mobile. Users are also encouraged to use amateur grade gear.

Am I allowed to drink my cheap whisky when operating their repeaters? :biggrin:
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.

Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.

All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain...

Time to die.

Hardly the spirit of ham radio - I'm ancient, but we had people buying Pye Pocket phones, that had the worlds worst audio, and nobody was worried. Incredible snob value to specify that only commercial grade radios should be used. That's never done anything for the quality of the actual conversation content. I'd rather listen to somebody interesting using ANY radio, than high quality, mellow, hi-fi audio talking drivel. Sounds elitist to me!
