Q) What might be the problem if you receive a report that your audio signal through the repeater is distorted or unintelligible?
A. Your transmitter may be slightly off frequency
B. Your batteries may be running low
C. You could be in a bad location
D. All of these choices are correct
At one time or another most hams experience all three of these issues. If your tuned slightly off frequency, simply adjust your radio. If your batteries are low, either switch batteries, recharge them, or switch to another power source (e.g. car power). If you are in a bad location, try moving to see if it helps improve your signal.
