Segway this argument to the 10m uplink now 100% available on PSAT PSK-31
which virtually no one is  using.

adding two meter transmit capability to an HF station.

For PSAT PSK31 it is even simpler.  Add a UHF FM HT to your HF station!

from Mode A...

We give them what they ask for, a multi-user simultaneous transponder
supporting dozens of simultaneous contacts, yet we have only seen 1 or 2
stations at a time give it a try.


Just an observation.  I thought this PSK-31 linerar uplink with FM
downlink would make everyone happy.  It's a foot in both camps..
