Actually it never bothered anyone when there were a lot of users on Oscar 7. The first time around for Oscar 7 lots of guys got their start keying the PTT on their 2M handie talkie for a CW up link. Everyone worked these guys encouraging them in their first satellite efforts. These guys usually moved up to a real CW rig. - Dr. Megacycle KK6MC/5
