With all the talk about the possibility of an L-band uplink and/or
S-band downlink on AO-51 since there will be at least 2 other V/U 
FM satellites available during Field Day weekend, what about sticking
with the V/U frequency combination but go with something different 
for the 2m uplink mode?  Using SSB or even CW on the 2m uplink would
make AO-51 different than the other V/U satellites, yet still provide
a challenge that more stations could take on than L-band or S-band -
and the variety that Drew mentioned that the AO-51 group wants to 
provide for Field Day weekend.

Just a thought...
