Hi Luciano, PT9KK

Using FM work through VO-52 is the crazy idea coming from those
that having anymore FM satellite like AO-51 are trying to infect the
only satellite with a good linear transponder for CW and SSB

Imagine a crazy presentation :

"How to use a linear transponder with your HT and arrow antenna"  !

I agree with you, keep VO-52 only for CW and SSB and use SO-50
for FM
