RE: New kenwood HT




This was how I originally got on Oscar 6.
I keyed my IC-230 FM xcvr via the PTT connection
and listened to the downlink on my FT-101.
It didn't sound great, it had a little chirp, 
but it work pretty well.

The thing I am dying to hear is how terrible the CW sounds when sent in
FM.  My thought is plugging a Key into the MIC/PTT jack and sending CW.
There should be no audio modulation because the internal Mic should be
disconnected so all you are doing is keying PTT.  As long as it is not too
terrible, then you should be able to do HT satellite CW QSO.

I do understand that it will sound terrible, but how bad?
Can you tell us?
