Welcome back to satellites. I got started by
helping set up the AO-6 West Coast Command Station.
But one thing you say has me puzzled: CW on a
LEO? They only do FM. Exception is AO-7 which
is a MEO and the Indian sat which has a linear
transponder which will pass CW/SSB. Or you
planning to send MCW by tone modulating the FM signal?
