Assuming you recorded your voice message on a tape recorder and played it
back at half the speed, it would take twice the time to send the message.
So we would be using half the bandwidth but twice the time. So the bands
would in effect be just as crowded. You could get twice as many stations on
a particular band but everybody would need to talk twice as long. You would
not gain anything and you definitly could not talk in "real" time.
