Hi John, AA5JG
FO29 is not the only linear mode satellite and you can actually use
OSCAR-7 and VO52 in Mode-B with great signals in 2 meters.
Day after yesterday on the ascending orbit Nr 35527 I was in
contact with IW6OVD chatting in SSB for 12 minutes only with
him the full orbit like on the telephone.
IW6OVD posted a mp3 file of the above QSO at the following
If you haven't worked either of these two historic satellites,AO7
and VO52, do it NOW!
