Wow, I hope not! QSK at any speed is like a full-duplex conversation on
the telephone. You can always tell if the station you're calling or working
hears you or if there is QRM on the freq. In a contest it's essential..
I modified my Argo-556 to have fast QSK up to 50 wpm (from the factory it
turned to semi-QSK above 15 wpm). Ten Tec suggested a resistor change, now
it's like it should be.
If anyone wants a description of the Scout/Argo QSK change, it's on my web
site (at the top of this page):
