OH MY GOSH! HA!
I was just talking about this last night to my son. You can always count on the two HAM operators at 4:30pm on channel 18 hitting the repeater asking how they sound and what they could do to sound better. :)

On a different note; I saw this warning on the Silver Valley Jamboree website and was wondering about it:
