Would it add considerable difficulty to use O-QPSK instead. This way class C
uplink amplifiers could be used, or at least we wouldn't have to worry as
much about saturating existing class A amplifiers. I don't think many hams
realize how close to saturation they operate some of their equipment. With a
PSK uplink, this could be a problem.
