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.
