    Love'em or hate'em ???? I've got a wolf howling and a toilet flushing. Also have a doorbell chime in when I key my mike, and a rodger beep. I can shut all mine off, or go on 19 and be very annoying !!!!!!! Anybody else have any noise toys ????

    I've just got the roger beep built into my radio and that's all.. I never use it, even on SSB.

    For the most part I hate all noise toys, echo, robot talk, most of the wacky ETS (end transmission signals), etc... Once in a very rare while they can be funny when used very little.

    I think *all* noise toy junk should *never* be used on SSB save for *possibly* a simple beep to help stations that can't hear you well tell when you're transmitting or not...

    On SSB I shut them all off. I usely use the noise toys to annnoy the crybabys on 19. Someone will start complaining about someones toys, and I'll start pushing buttons. But only on the crybabys. I do usely have my ping (doordell) and rodger beep on whenever I'm on AM. It's very distinktive. I do like alittle echo as long as it's not over driven, I have the robot voice and voice changer, but I've never used them I'm running a Galaxy 99.

    Those damn noise toys. When I here those damn things I wanna jam their radio right up their a$$. Roger beep is bad enough. I cant even stand it when someone puts to much echo in the box. That just me though.

    I hear ya, very seldom do I push a button for a noise toy, but sometimes it's fun to annoy someone with them. I don't like it either when the echo is overdriven. I just have a hint of it. I want everyone to understand what I'm saying.
