Hi All,
On the 06:06(UTC) pass over Japan, I have tried to receive
downlink signal from AO-16 on mode-AM.
As a result, I have enjoied better sound quality and easy 
tuning than USB in spite of heavy QRMs.
(However, against deep QSB, USB mode offers some
advantage for better readability. .)

TRX which I used is Kenwood TS-2000 with SatPC32
At the TS-2000, minimum tuning step on the VHF,
and UHF bands mode-AM are 5KHz, hence "fine tuning" 
by SatPC32 was absolutory necessary.
Thanks to SatPC32.
