Hi Pete, MI3EPN

Absolutely wrong  because FO-29 has a linear transponder designed
for use on CW and SSB.

Why to vaste a lot of battery power using a stady carrier in FM and why
to occupy a wide band interfering those who are using CW and SSB ?

For the same reason no body was using FM in the early 1970-1980 
with satellites like OSCAR-6 , OSCAR-7 and OSCAR-8 

Use please those many FM satellites specifically designed for a
single channel in FM.
