Well sayd.............I agree with you !

CW and SSB is just what we have to do on VO-52

BTW, it's impossible to access VO-52 in FM with a 5 watt HT
and arrow antennas because for a decent QSO on CW and SSB
we need at least 50 watt and a 13 dBi 70 cm antenna.

We, operators of VO-52 linear transponder on CW and SSB
we have a lot of counter measures against any FM intruder
into the VO-52 linear passband.
