It seems strange to me that, on the occasions that I tune a receiver up 
to 11m, I very, very often hear that sort of call, but never hear the 
same people in a conversation with anyone.

That's only immediately after the "audio-audio" test.  And it's  
Skiplan', skiplan', ya gotta copy, c'mawn?".  No wait, that's only the 
CB AM'ers
that do that.  The CB slawbuckets and freebanders improperly use Q 
They still use the "audio-audio" test though.

According to what I have monitored on 75m, the way you are supposed to 
tests over the air is to (1) connect the crappiest sounding microphone 
can find, (2) put your transmitter in SSB mode, (3) turn your audio up 
high as it will go, way past the point of distortion, turn on your 
making sure the blower noise comes  through loudly enough to make the 
read at  least half-scale, then (4) tranmit, yelling into the 
"Audio - audio -audio - aaaauuuuuuudio"

You can be assured that another SSB op will come back to you and tell 
what a good sounding signal you have.  :-)
