I love QSK CW on HF, but it's totally un-necessary at VHF and above. Besides, what I've heard of transition time of relays in an antenna system and switching for preamps are likely to be the limiting factor.

More to the point -- CW has been dead on 6M, at least from my observation point in NorCal for at least four years. Although I've been primarily a CW operator since 1956, the last CW signal I heard on 6M was 4 years ago, and it was a VE6 that I had to send 4 cards over 3 years to get a QSL.
