Yes Joe, 100% duty cycle would be ideal. But occasional CW or QRSS id's won't hurt either, as long as phase is being preserved.

Hi Markus,

That is most interesting.   I remember that occasion when TX was on later
than usual.  It will take a bit of tinkering to get the phase coherent exciter
to the class E TX, but this is long overdue anyway.  Would you like
a continuous QRP carrier without any keying?

Best Regards
Joe VO1NA
