Rise and fall times are only a small part of the bandwidth issue
Tony. Synthesizer settling and bounce can be a major player.

PSK people try to sell it based on how narrow the mode is, and yet
it has one of the poorest dynamics of any system used! You
should see how the PSK people whine about QRM from other PSK
signals when the strengths are 30-40dB different.
