I do too.  There are a couple of issues at work here.  Those with more
in this hobby (wasn't that diplomatic George) realize that a broad signal
that less signal is being delivered within the target bandwidth.  That means
power and LESS effectiveness (not to mention SOUNDING crudy).  More often
than not, when I have been alerted to my poor signal quality it has led me
to find
other problems, usually intermittents in the antenna system.
