OMG, not just misconfigurations.  Do some people ever listen to their own 
radios?  Here in San Diego we have some of the sickliest sounding packets 
being transmitted.   Someone close to me in the San Marcos area has a radio 
that makes a loud "dunk" noise every time it keys up which probably masks 
the entire packet preamble.   It's been this way for years.  I bet this 
person wonders why he never gets digipeated.  There's another one that 
sounds like a dying cricket.
