I'm starting to think that this must be the case.   I've always had people
complain that they got a lot of static when they called me - I thought I had
the buzz problem in fact.   I just spent the time to figure out how to use
alsamixer to tweak things, and if I set control.5 (Mono Playback Volume)  to
83 from above 100 like I've seen in other gsmhandset.state files (ranging
from 100 to 110 seems normal), I get a perfectly clear signal on the other

I'll see if people now complain that I'm too quiet...   but it's a lot
better than the static.

I'd suggest that *everyone* try out alsamixer - I just called my phone with
a landline, and then fired it up alsamixer and experiemented with what
alsamixer called 'Mono' until the static went away...  Wish I'd figured that
out months ago...
