I have posed this question before.
This morning I worked a VO-52 pass from my patio. The weather was absolutely beautiful.
If you hear a station calling CQ, on CW, for an entire pass, who are they working?
We all know the answer… No one!
They are calling CQ. Hopefully they can hear themselves in full-duplex because it would be the only CW they heard on the entire pass.
I acknowledge there are some nice operators who use CW on the satellites. I know and use CW, too, but know that if I keep calling over and over, it’s no better than voice.
If ET calls home and there’s no one home, the phone will just keep ringing.
