Most RTTY programs have a computere generated CW facility also.
Morse-challenged operators could possibly use such ?

Normal RTTY would not be acceptable on LF this has been discussed many times
Everyone seems to be avoiding the obvious choice ie NORMAL CW.
The 500 khz band if it becomes available to radio amateurs has traditionally
been a CW band.
I would suggest that those interested in LF should learn CW. This mode is
more likely to attract new users on LF.
Data modes are useful if there is a large volume of traffic to move between
stations. The average radio amateur only exchanges Name, QTH, and QSA/QRK
and CW is ideal for this purpose and no complicated modems are required.
