All good points, Jeff.

One other thing I've noticed is that some people using Narrow FM mode 
might want to try normal deviation to sound better.  The Narrow doesn't 
always help.  There is no "one size fits all" on the Narrow/Wide FM 
debate for AO-85. Use what works best for your station.  Some radios 
like the IC-9100 allow you to set Narrow for either the uplink or 
downlink separately.
