FCC Technician Exam Question Of The Day (T7B01)

Q) What can you do if you are told your FM handheld or mobile transceiver is over deviating?

A) Talk farther away from the microphone

NJ2X Notes:
The sound of an overdriven signal is unpleasant to listen to.  The microphone gain control is often overused and abused.  Improve your antenna and station before cranking up the gain.
