[UK-CONTEST] Product Review

You may be correct about equalizers but perhaps they are not commonly used
because we don't understand their value to us.

At present, I am struggling to obtain a decent recoding of my CQ in my
laptop using audacity. There are various weird noises in the background
(-30dB at a guess) which I would like to remove. I wonder if an outboard
equalizer would be a useful adjunct.

However, I do echo your question as to who selects products for review.

In general, in my view, Radcom is a much more worthwhile read (no pun
intended) since Giles took over as technical editor.

Neil, G3RIR

Outboard audio equalisers are not, in my experience, a widely-used
accessory. Some modern rigs have the functionality built-in to the
transmit DSP, should it be required. Perhaps there just isn't anyone out
there familiar enough or interested enough in such a product?

Which raises some questions. Who chooses which bits of kit get reviewed in
Radcom? Is this more a case of W2IHY trying to get some free publicity for
his piece of kit? If audio equalisers aren't commonly used, why are we
taking up valuable Radcom space reviewing one?
