In past years, the satellite digital modes for Field Day were limited to two types of contacts:
1. PBBS contacts with GO-32: 3 points for uploading a message to ALL describing your Field Day setup, and 3 points for each message to ALL that you download. GO-32 may or may not be operational. (AO-51 is capable of
PBBS mode, but will be operating in FM voice for Field Day.)
2. APRS unproto 3-way exchange via NO-44 (semi-operational), ISS, and maybe HO-68.
Detailed description of the digital mode rules can be found here:
