However true that may be, some folks like to experiment, and those
experiments can include trying to maximize the fidelity of the system.
This type of experimentation is very much a natural part of the ham
radio hobby as a whole.

Some of the high fi SSB audio crowd forget the whole idea of SSB was to
RESTRICT bandwidth of the audio to provide the "punch" for more effective
communications during poor propagation, use of low power, mobile
General LeMay of the Air Force (also a ham of the 50's), proved SSB was the
superior voice mode for that in tactical SAC communications for the bomber
fleets of the Cold War. He did a Round the World trip to show an Air Force
plane using SSB could maintain global communications on HF.
