Headset audio quality
« on: July 28, 2005, 09:06:57 AM »
For those who've answered my ACC questions, thanks a much guys.  My question is the change in voices every 30 to 90 minutes.  One guy's headset will broadcast the whole center's loudness in a single radio transmission, while other controllers broadcast a dead silent background.  Could this just be a difference in the headset, the controller's radar console location or is it possible that an overhead mic/speakerphone is being used?


FSS wannabe, just curious about stuff, that's all.

It's probably just where the controller is sitting in the facility.  Sometimes, certain areas and consoles will block noise.  I usually never hear dead background noise on a transmission in the US except late night and very very early morning.
