Has anyone any experience of any of the audio compressors such as the W4RT One Big Punch for the FT 817? I’m thinking that something to improve the talk power of my portable setup would be a good investment. An in-the-mike processor is lighter than an external PA!
I’ve no intention of paying half a ton for one ready made when the bits and pieces to make one are only buttons. But as I’d have to buy a slack handful of ICs (minimum quantity is 5 I think) and they’re tiny little surface mount blighters I don’t want to go to a load of effort for something that doesn’t make much difference.
If you’ve ever used one, or if you own one, or if you’ve had a QSO with someone using one, then please let me know.
