Any particular reason?  I tried the SSB sats, but they just plain weren't fun to operate.  I suppose if you want to humph around expensive, fragile transceivers that require four hands to operate and still sound like an angry duck in a tin outhouse, SSB has something going for it.

Leave SSB to the gallbladder brigade on 80m.
