DARN Transmitting Instruction

When you key your mike, there is a brief delay before the repeater transmitter comes up. This often results in the first syllable or two being cut off of your transmission if you talk immediately. To avoid this, key up and wait an instant before you speak. You'll sound more professional and the net will proceed more smoothly. Remember: KEY - WAIT - SPEAK.
