I humbly agree with you Michael. Even though I do understand that some Hams can not afford a second radio, the swarms of cheap radios on the market lately has pretty much alleviated that issue.Maybe it's not always possible, but attempting full duplex is not only better practice, but is a very gratifying challenge to anyone that hears what the have been missing.
I give you a thumbs up sir.

It sure would be nice if you would quit telling people that full duplex
is "not mandatory" for working sats. It absolutely should be MANDATORY.
Having full duplex should be stated as rule # 1 of operating on a
satellite regardless of which one it is and what mode you are
operating. Not using full duplex results in needless interference and
frustration. Just my humble opinion.
