6ds dispatch console radio voice quality??? wow

HI guys, im sure compared to uhf cb that the voice quality transmitted with the 6ds dispatch radio sounds like the system they use in a comercial talkback radio station? they must have a massive load of sound equipment attached to the dispatchers mouth piece?

ive always wanted to know what my voice would sound like if i ever talked into it at the ST john HQ.

It sounds like they're using a lot of audio compression. Each to his own... I don't think it sounds any better. The problem is if they use too much compression then it will tend to cut off too sharply on words with a hard P, T, or S sound.
