So far I do not think the biscuits are on my end...but then again we are not given to admitting those types of things.

The actual situations I have dealt with were mostly either excited dispatchers, or incorrect usage of the microphone, like having it too close to the mouth when speaking.

I like the recording idea, that way if you need to have a record of the conversation you can, but if it was truly garbled I think you might be wasting the memory space haha.
