I am amazed about this also!  For the first 10 or 11 years I was on
satellites, ALL 
my contacts were on CW, thousands of them.  I think I had to get on voice
to work 
one state to get  W.A.S.  Sometimes if I was calling CQ on CW, someone on
would answer me. Sometimes when someone else was calling CQ on SSB, 
I would call them on CW and they would come right back and we would
the QSO.
