[CQ-Contest] cr*ppy signals

Hi all,

I appreciate it when somebody gives me a less-than-perfect signal 
report.  During SS/SSB I was messing with some EB switching on my 
amp, and several people told me my signal sounded "clipped" or like I 
was using "too much digital processing."  Nobody said I was 
splattering, though.  

I got rid of the EBS for the 10m contest (so the final runs a bit 
warmer... no big deal) and the comments I received were "great 
signal"  (I love that one!)  "big signal," and "monster signal, and 
very clean"!  (I really like that one too!)  

So yes, I'd guess ops should be told if their signals leave something 
to be desired.  If they choose to do nothing about it, then at least 
they were told.
