    Rather than preach chapter and verse, i would rather say cherchunking the repeater is not good amateur radio practice. Since many new ham are watching this video, we should be using proper procedure I.A.W. the rules ( must id at the end of every transmission and every 10 minutes)
    we in our area, had a lot of issues with users not identifying. Since we make it a practice to ID everytime we bring up the repeater the cerechunkinh has gone way down and we have had a much nicer, cleaner repeater.
    Yes i know we are all guilty of cerchuking a repeater ( me included), but i am ware when i do it and correct myself by going back on an sending my ID
    really nice video series, i have watched several. Keep up the great work and selection of topics

      You are not wrong, and I do not disagree. What you did not see, because I didn’t include it in the video, was my keying the repeater and asking if it was in use, then stating that I was about to do some radio testing with it. I didn’t include that in the video because it would have just been extra time that wasn’t relevant to the review of the B1 device. But I do agree with what you are saying. Thanks for watching and commenting.

    Let’s get a review of the audio quality on the B1 device. How does it sound on the air, compared to other popular 2m/70cm handhelds? The RFinder concept is clear and very nice. I’m sure the device works well on DMR. But how does it sound on analog FM?

    • kc5hwb says:

      Great idea. You will see several more videos on the B1 upcoming in this channel. FM audio is great, that is actually the easy part, LOL.
