I wanted to listen in but that was all I could do. My AO-40 S band
downconverter comes out on 2M and I believe that most others also had 2M
output. I would have needed another radio and was rapidly running out of
hands. Now if it were possible to run U/S for AO-51 that would probably get
a lot of AO-40 S band equipment out of storage.
