AO-51 is FM only the last I checked.

With all the talk about the possibility of an L-band uplink and/or S-band downlink on AO-51 since there will be at least 2 other V/U FM satellites available during Field Day weekend, what about sticking with the V/U frequency combination but go with something different for the 2m uplink mode? Using SSB or even CW on the 2m uplink would make AO-51 different than the other V/U satellites, yet still provide a challenge that more stations could take on than L-band or S-band - and the variety that Drew mentioned that the AO-51 group wants to provide for Field Day weekend.
Just a thought...
