Hi Pat, KA9SCF

You are right and actually all FO-29 users are moving  in to the VO-52
linear transponder for CW and SSB contacts so that in Europe VO-52 in FM is
not welcomed.

In addition VO-52 (tanks to our friends in India) and the old FO-7 are the
only satellites to be used for CW and SSB.......... waiting for P3E

There are lot of CW and SSB operators with only 2 satellites and there are
lot of satellites specifically designed for FM !
