Subject: Clearing the Frequency
Message-ID: <199503022354.AA13778 at>

Properly done, injecting a tone into an SSB transmitter for CW produces
spectrally the same thing as a keyed carrier, provided the carrier & unwanted
sideband are far enough down.  The best example of this I can remember is a
TL8 I worked on AO-13 who didn't have a key & refused to breathe through his
mouth...  Needless to say, it was very much appreciated.  Not that I want to
start a debate on the subject, but if what comes out of the spiquet looks like
CW, I'd call it CW - regardless how I made it.
Of course, doing this right doesn't achieve the desired effect if you want to
clear your frequency & adjoining areas.  It's too bad that the States are so
heavily legislated.  Over here we can do whatever we want, within the rough
limits of "voice, morse, data, TV, etc" up to a certain output power & within
a unified occupied bandwidth.  Plenty of room to work with.  Oh yes, there's
also no restrictions on which mode can be used where, too.
Having said that, I must also say that such trickery, while no doubt
technically legal in some places, is deplorable. I'll have to admit that I
can't recall loosing too many frequency battles, except for on 40m.  What
works for me & unfortunately won't work for most of you is that given a VS6 &
a S5 or whatever right next to each other, they'll go for the VS6 everytime -
all I need to do is keep calling CQ!
