When placed in that mode, you transmit on FM voice, and listen on SSB (or I suppose AM would work too). We did this with AO-16 after the digital system gave up the ghost. It's a neat trick that has been integrated into some of the commercial cubesat radio systems. You'll see this on the Triton-1 sat in 3 or so months as well.
