    FM Overdeviation: Reminds me of a once-local op (now SK) who wired a CB “power mike” to his Realistic HTX-202 2m HT. Result, the transmitter was driven wide and his signal would chop and drop out of repeater receivers. Hilariously, he’d hold QSOs while dining at the local IHOP, and every tinkle and crash from the kitchen could be clearly heard. Too much Audio Swing! 馃槅

    Blasting Your Radio Off The Desk: Perhaps wiring two 1N4001 diodes back-to-back across the speaker might mitigate this somewhat. Of course the audio clipping so introduced might be another issue… 馃槻
