It was the TS-930 that used LSB on cw. I had one too, and 
now use "cw-reverse" on the TS-850. I also think most people 
tune from the low end of the band to the high end. I think 
you get more "collisions" if you are swimming against the 
main stream. I'm sure everyone likes to tune from high pitch 
to low pitch, rather than have a station pop right up out of 
zero beat, and most rigs default to USB.

Now, all I have to do is figure out why my multiplier in the 
Sprint is consistently lower than other people who have 
similar qso totals. Maybe that is the true benefit of so2r, 
which I don't do in the Sprint.
