Hmmm...  Interesting.  That means that we all need to check both satellites before using either one, to be sure the orbits and modes are compatible, and avoid the passes that aren't (no matter how tempting).  Dual-bird SSB/CW ops may be confusing, but accidentally running high power FM into FO-29 could be far worse.  That bird is too delicate and precious to abuse.
