[chirp_users] Baofeng UV-5RA...lost first words

Is this being caused by the battery saver setting? If the receiver is 
asleep it may be a second before it wakes up and opens the squelch.

Try adjusting Basic Settings -> battery saver and see if you notice any 
difference for the different values.

>> If via a repeater, realize some repeaters have a slight delay, especially if the carrier is allowed to drop between transmissions and/or it uses PL/DPL. Some dual mode repeaters (analog/digital) can exhibit this behavior. Also, at least one repeater in my area has a delay (1-2 seconds) on the first transmission in a conversation to discourage "pinging" the repeater.

>>    Another thought.? If this phenomenon of missing the first couple of words happens when communication with a paticular individual, then perhaps that individual is "Quick Keying", or not fully engaging the PTT on their radio before speaking.? If this seems to be the case, encourage them to consciously be sure they're pressing the PTT and pausing slightly before speaking.? This is often a problem with newer or inexperienced operators in the Ham world

>>
>> Email lists are strange.  Gmail doesn't send you back your own posts, which was the original setting "way" back in 1980s when everyone was on a 300 baud modem and phone lines. Conserve valuable bandwidth in those days.  Now sending you your own message takes a few milliseconds.
>>
>> I still use mutt and thunderbird, both have "bounce" functions because sometimes my list subscribers think they have to send their emails to me for forwarding to the list.  Bouncing an email makes it look like it was sent by the original sender to the final addressee - which in my case is always the email list, but it can be abused to fool people, Person A sends me and email, I bounce it to Person B and Person B thinks it was sent directly from Person A.  You can see it came through me if you look at the headers.
>>
>> I did have my email list set up that way in 1994 when I started that list as a "one way" email list.  Finally when google announced it was doing free lists, I jumped at the chance.  I also printed newsletters using a Commodore 64 and GeoPublish - wow that's going back some.
