Re: VHF Static After Reception
Just to add to your already excellent advice; try to get into the habit of adjusting the squelch regularly.
This control is one of the most misunderstood and least used function on the radio
. It often is knocked or otherwise inadvertently maladjusted; often without the user being aware of it. Turned too far one way, you will miss distant or weak transmissions. Of course, too far the other way and the result is obvious (hash or continuous receiver noise).
All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangereous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. T.E. Lawrence
