FAQ - Frequently Answered Questions

Q: Most modern transceivers have a built-in equalizer. So, why should one buy a W2IHY EQ?

A: Some people feel that they would rather use the internal EQ in their radios. The problem is two fold. One a lot of hams can not get the EQ to work well in the radio and find my products easier to use and two when they compare the quality of audio produced by the radio to what is generated by the W2IHY gear, the W2IHY gear is noticeably superior. One example is the compressor in the EQPlus. The compressors in most modern day radios are RF compressors. RF compressors can work well but they have a couple of characteristics. They roll off the lows below around 300 Hz. and they must be carefully adjusted to minimize perceptible distortion. If they are overdriven it is usually bad news. A lot of hams do not use their radios compressor because they can not make it sound like they want. The audio compressor in the EQplus does not roll off the lows. When you turn it on the whole audio spectrum gets louder similar to what happens when you turn on a linear amplifier. My gear works very well and is easy to use. Look at the EHAM reviews.

By the way the third place German winners of WRTC2014 were using IC756PRO3's with EQPluses attached. The PRO3 has an equalizer and compressor. So why would they use the EQPlus. They used an EQPlus because it just plain works a lot better than what is in the radio. You are heard better.
