About a week after receiving my O2 I began a thread "O2
Sidetone...RST599C" (around October 1 2006). The problem only occurs
occasionally, and I haven't determined the set of bandwidth, noise
reduction, etc. settings common to it. Often it's clear as a bell, but I
was so concerned that I got my old Century 21 out to act as a monitor.
The O2's signal was fine, so I haven't used the C21 since.
