I think it's a great idea. I suspect there will, indeed, be some Doppler challenges.

Although, I wonder.... How would Doppler's impact on PSK-31 be different from, say, SSTV? I ask because the SSTV schedules on AO-51 have been pleasantly surprising to me, in terms of the quality of image I was getting.
