I know what you mean.  PTT raises the annoyance factor of having  
someone on a cell phone next to you by at least a factor of 3.  And  
does the audio quality from the speaker need to be so *awful*?

As someone who actually *uses* 2-way radios, I also think the delay  
between pushing the button and the "chirp" would drive me up the  
wall.  I'm used to waiting maybe half a second for the tone squelch  
to disengage, then talking.
