Der MFJ-616 ist ein Hilfsmittel zur Verbesserung der Sprachverständlichkeit in allen Betriebsarten in denen mit Sprache gearbeitet wird, auch in CW.

Durch selektive Anpassung der Lautstärke hoher und tiefer Töne wird die Sprachverständlichkeit im Bereich 300 - 2700 Hz den Besonderheiten des menschlichen Hörens angepasst. Eine Balance für das rechte / linke Ohr kann separat eingestellt werden. Per Schalter kann zwischen zwei Transceivern umgeschaltet werden.

Hier ein Erfahrungsbericht von Martin F. Jue , K5FLU Präsident und Gründer von MFJ „Als ich älter wurde , lies die Fähigkeit höhere Töne zu hören nach und ich konnte den QSO’s nicht mehr so einfach folgen, dies war eine bittere Erfahrung für mich.

Nach einiger Entwicklungszeit entstand der MFJ-616.

Nachdem ich aber den MFJ-616 an meine Station angeschlossen hatte , und einige Einstellungen vorgenommen hatte konnte ich meinen Ohren kaum glauben. Sprache welche ich vorher kaum noch verstanden habe konnte ich jetzt deutlich besser verstehen.

Mein Hobby hat mich wieder zurück“

1.The frequencies important for speech intelligibility are the consonant sounds from 500 to 4000 Hz. They contribute 83% of word intelligibility. Frequencies from 500 to 1000 Hz contributes 35% of word intelligibility and 35% of sound energy. Frequencies from 1000 to 4000 Hz contributes 48% of intelligibility but has only 4% of sound energy!

2. In contrast, frequencies from 125 to 500 Hz contributes 55% of sound energy but only 4% to word intelligibility.
In other words, nearly half the speech intelligibility is contained in 1000 to 4000 Hz frequency range with only 4% of the speech sound energy. On the other hand, the low frequencies 125 to 500 Hz have most of the speech energy but contribute very little to intelligibility.

How I improved my ability to hear and understand QSOs
The research showed me what to do.
First, drastically increase the speech energy above 500 Hz where 83% of intelligibility is concentrated. Second, drastically reduce the speech energy below 500 Hz that contributes only 4% of intelligibility. Amateur radio communications limit audio to about 300 to 2700 Hz. I split the audio band into four overlapping octave ranges centered at 300, 600, 1200, 2400 Hz. I could boost or cut each range by nearly 20 db to give me full control. This let me maximize speech intelligibility for most kinds of frequency loss. My left ear is weaker than my right ear so I split the output audio into left and right channels with separate 2.5 watt amplifiers. A balance control lets me equalize the perceived loudness to each ear. Now both ears help in improving speech intelligibility!

I couldnt believe my ears!
I built one and hooked it to my rig.
I boosted the high frequencies, cut the low frequencies, set the volume and adjusted the balanced control so I could hear each side equally loud. I couldnt believe my ears! Speech that I could hear but barely understand before was now highly understandable. I got my ham radio back!
With this concept youll understand QSOs better and enjoy ragchewing and contesting more, even if you dont have high frequency hearing loss.

It helped me so much I wanted to share this with my fellow hams.
I developed this into an accessory that any ham can use.
I made it immune to RFI, added a front panel phone jack, on/off speaker switch, two selectable transceiver inputs, a bypass switch for in/out comparison and built into 10Wx2.5Hx6D inch aluminum enclosure. Needs 12 VDC.

Other uses
Replace your rigs audio section for superb audio. Eliminate hum, buzzes, poor frequency response, low power.
Works with SSB, FM, AM, CW -- any voice mode. Use any rig -- ham, marine, aircraft, CB. Use for PA systems, internet phone, radio talk shows.
