    While I personally think Roger beeps are stupid, or maybe I mean those who use them, I could tolerate them a lot more if they weren't significantly louder than the voice of the guy using the roger beep. I've listened to beeps that still were obnoxiously loud even when the speakers voice was no longer audible.

    Well some of us "assholes" like to have fun and aren't stuff shirts like most hams. I think a lot of hams need to get a big blunt, stuff with weed, get some wild Turkey, and a hooker and chill tf out!

    The "assholes" I was referring too are the idiots that operate like idiots inside the ham bands. I don't give a flying F*%# what someone does outside the amateur bands just keep the childish noise toys, overmodulated radios, and class C amps off of them. If someone wants to act like an idiot then by all means fire up between 26 and 28 MHz and go for it. I spent far too many years in that part of the spectrum to feel otherwise. I grew up and moved on to greener pastures.

    I wonder if there is a way to use the roger beep as a key up beep also?

    Yes, it has been a while (over 20 years?), but I set up a "beep" to fire on keydown and key release. You have to remove the diode that "shorts" the beep oscillator and replace it with a timer circuit that delays the beep mute on keydown like the diode did, then fires again when you release the key.

    I also used to make Digital Voice Recorders that records off the air, then self keys the radio when you press the Play back button, firing what it had recorded back at them. I had one I set up to be an "end fire recorder", that would fire when you unkeyed, like to copy someone's so called custom roger beep.

    We had a local "back yard technician" in another nearby town that was constantly badmouthing our shop, who had a Sadelta echo mike with double beep and an extended duration Galaxy or Ranger internal beep, so 3 beeps that sounded like Pee-der-Beeeeeeep. He made the claim that nobody could copy his roger beep, Challenge Accepted. I rolled through "his" town one night, caught his beep just right, then when I rolled through his town on my way home for the next month or so, keyed my end fire after everyone elses unkey. Or on my quick snide comments. It pissed him off to no end.

    Just own a Cobra 19 DX early version, their cruddy PLL's slow response to the VCO's "Ramp up" causes a "chirp" to be heard in both Key-Up and Un-Key

    I think a key up chirp or ping would help identify who is about to talk.
