No generalized statement should be made about many different rigs by 
many different manuafactures used in different operating conditions, 
without your modifying statements.

I tend to agree if you are running AFSK since you are using modulation, 
but if using FSK and the rig is rated for 100% duty cycle, no problem.  
There have been a fair number of rigs rated at 100% duty cycle over the 
last 20 years, but not all.
