For EMCOMM we may need to contact stations operating with very compromised antennas and need the most robust transmission.
IMHO the current -5dB requirement for decoding broadcasts is too limiting and we should have an option to use the same -21dB decoding requirement as CQ.
Thus for EMCOMM I would like to be able to select broadcast transmission to use the same speed-level as CQ.
e,g, When broadcast first came out I tried to use it but not be heard.
For a station I was working with normal messages had no problem.
I could also receive broadcast from same station.
From Irad on FB page:
Broadcast is like aprs. Sending out a message (up to 92 chara) to the universe.As demtre stated, cq is more robust and can be decoded with -21db like ft8. Broadcasts are not and not decoded below -5db.
