First question I ask is:  Do you have your noise blanker turned on?

usually they say yes and after turning it off everything is fine.

There's so many LIDS out there that don't understand how to use their
wireless and typically they inhabit nets more frequently than not.

As only two people complained its possible only one guy had his noise blanker onand his friend just called to be obnoxious - I'm sure you would have been
deluged with irate callers had you *really* been splattering.
