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
other problems, usually intermittents in the antenna system.
