Nice to see I wasn't the only "Fool" around in those days! my first satellite station and contacts were made with an old Regency HR2A fm rig. I took one of the xstals, put an eraser to it to get it in the cw passband. of AO7,and cut and keyed the B+ line to the final transistor,brought that out thru a jack to my hand pump,and worked cw! no chirps, just rock bound,but worked tons of qso's with that before getting my FT221 SSB/CW rig.where there is a will, there is a way,
