John and anyone else who's interested:

This goes for not only Mode A, but Mode JA, Mode B, 
etc.  

There are quite a few operators out there who will respond
cross-mode.  I've made quite a few QSO's with people who
were CQ'ing on SSB and I answered them on CW because my 
SSB signal was too weak for them to copy.  And vice-versa,
today I was CQ'ing on AO-10 on CW and got answered by 
a SSB station. No big deal --- COmmunications is what
counts, not what mode you're on.

A very interesting incident happened yesterday, I heard
RTTY (!) on Oscar 10 for the first time in many years.
Couldn't hook up my RTTY fast enough so I called on CW
to answer the station.  Then he answered me on SSB!
Then I switched to SSB and we chatted!  What a deal!
The other station was JA5LG.  When we finished our QSO,
he went back to CQ'ing on RTTY some more. I did get 
my machine hooked up to receive and was able to copy 
his "RYRYRYR" and "CQ CQ CQ" on the screen.

John, K6YK
