One thing I would like to see tried, perhaps for one FD as a test, would be
to relax the restrictions on FM mode contacts where one or both of the
frequencies is above 70 cm. That would certainly encourage people to try
L/U or V/S. Based on last year's numbers, every L/U station could have
worked every other station easily, given the shortness of a FD QSO.
Considering that people manage to work these modes portable, and in the case
of N5AFV, mobile, it is relatively easy to get on. The mode-S downlink is
truly loud, easily overcoming the general 2.45 GHz QRM/QRN.
