Don't get me wrong, I love the new series of 10M radios from Stryker. However, on a few occasions, I have noticed an unusual sound from an AM radio... the RX sounds like a VOIP call with a bad connection (technically, termed "jitter"). This only seems to occur (or at least, be noticeable) when the channel gets busy. The problem seems to be at its worst when mother nature opens up the aether and the background noise level is S5+. I don't believe it is due to RX overload; nearby transmitters don't seem to have the same effect as a "busy" channel. Two of the offending radios have been the v2 SSB models, the other is a v2 AM/FM model. Am I the only one? I have been searching for nearly a year now and have not found anyone else complaining...but... on 3 different radios, from 3 different production runs, I have confirmed this phenomena.
Has anyone else noticed this? Would you care to speculate the cause? Share your hypothesis; email@example.com
