Hi Craig, W1MSG
Well sayd ...........I agree with you !
CW and SSB is just what we have to do on VO-52
BTW, it's impossible to access VO-52 in FM with a 5 watt HT
and arrow antennas because for a decent QSO in CW and SSB
we need at least 50 watt and a 13 dBi 70 cm antenna.
We, operators of VO-52 linear transponder on CW and SSB
we have a lot of counter measures against any FM intruder
into the VO-52 linear passband.

I have to agree with Edgar, expand your capabilities and use it as designed
SSB or CW. There are two other FM birds out there and that's where the FM
should stay ..

This is an important debate in difficult times.
I am with G7HIA on this one, namely that *** if there is no damage to the
satellite *** a QRP (below 5w handy) operation might be considered to be
feasible on a centre frequency.
It is not our bird to give permission. There are of course two transponders
If permission were given ONLY for QRP in effect this means that WE must
police this. It would be for us to discorage alligators.
(Technically alligators can already use the bird anyway but don't).
