Nah, The ARRL says cw is an old mode, not helpful, and choking future
growth. Could they be wrong?  We shouldn't mix hi-tech hardware with
low-tech modes. The hobby won't grow if we keep using cw.

My first satellite contact was keying my fm HT on rs-10.  I think the ham I
contacted felt sorry for me due to the poor stability of my cw tone.  It
wasn't long after this that I joined amsat. I was hooked.
