Re: POSAT MODE -YOUR SAY



Easy to use the mike?
Not for everybody.

A digital qso does not tell as much about the person behind the callsign ,
as a voice qso does.
It`s not only your voice that can be heard,
but also a part of your personallity.

Thats what i like about voice , preferably in FM.
But i`m an outgoing HAM , and used to
speaking in public.

I know voice is not easy , for manny of our HAM friends.
