I agree -- there was plenty of CW activity on AO-40. The same seemed to be
true for AO-10 and AO-13 for that matter. At poor squint angles CW extended
the usable pass time when SSB failed. I certainly miss the DX birds. I work
CW much of the time on satellite as well and sometimes find FO-29 loaded
with CW signals and not much else. I guess it all depends on what pass
you're on.
