Shouldn't be too hard to knock up a 2m CW rig.  Something with a couple of
watts would be an inexpensive project and a fun way to get started on
satellites.  As it only needs to cover 200 kHz, a VXO arrangement could be used
for frequency generation.

Could also be a way to make CW fun for some... testing one's own transmitter.
