I feel that XW-1 is an excellent everybody's satellite when it is Linear
mode, it is very easy to use.  Also, it's large footprint makes it possible 
for multiple contacts over a wide area at the same time.  I say keep it in 
linear mode all the time because the Amsat-na board of directors don't want 
to build linear satellites. They only want single channel FM satellites 
that sound like a circus. Fox will probably sound the same way.
