Back in the AO-40 (sobsob) days there were several Dxpeditions that were on.  Whether there was more bandwidth, 2.4Ghz receive, operator discipline or whatever.  It worked quite well.  Those were the days my friends!

The question remains. Did anyone work them on FO-29 ?

A cooperative effort from everyone would be needed to maximize the QSOs. If 
everyone has their power cranked to 11 and they keep calling, you'll never 
hear the 5 watt signal of K1N when they attempt to respond to someone. 

That's probably too much to ask though. Maybe the only way to do a satellite 
DXpedition in an entity as rare as this is to have everyone register their 
interest, then assign skeds and have the DXpedition operator call through 
the list pre-prepared for each pass.
