Re: A simple 60 meter CW transmitter -- Maybe NOT

Here's a technical description of CW on 60 from Recommended Practices...

Ummmmmmmmmmm------- one can operate cw on 60 meters and not SSB, Chuck.
As updated 5 March 2012, Sounds like SSB to me??

CW Operation
CW operation must take place at the center of
your chosen channel. This means that your
transmitting frequency must be 1.5 kHz above the
suppressed carrier frequency as specified in the
Report and Order (see Table 1).
The channel center frequencies are …
Channel 1: 5332.0 kHz
Channel 2: 5348.0 kHz
Channel 3: 5358.5 kHz
Channel 4: 5373.0 kHz
Channel 5: 5405.0 kHz
Consult your transceiver manual. Some
transceivers transmit CW at the exact frequencies
shown on their displays, but others offset the
actual transmission frequency by a certain amount
(for example, 600 Hz). If your manual is not
clear on this point, contact the manufacturer. If
you have access to a frequency counter, this is
an excellent tool for ensuring that your CW
signal is on the channel center frequency.


Not finding anything that you can transmit directly on the carrier frequecy...
