Interesting. My issue isn't the quality of the audio but that the radio goes
dead (no bars) and recovers sooner or later while sitting on my desk. A
recent call kept dropping my voice while the other person's voice was
continuous. It's dropped connection to the tower/network from here a a
couple of other places.

There are abundant radio-free zones in eastern Oregon and northern
Washington and Nevada (such as > 4 miles north and south of I-80) but losing
and regaining a connection while the phone sits in the same place is a
different issue.
