Hi Ron, KA4KYI

If you are into a real emergency you have not the time to wait for a
possible FM satellite pass and have a chance that someone is
understanding your problem,your location and how to hep you into
the QRM made by a lot of stations calling in the same channel and
all at the same time.

A linear transponder in SSB plenty of room for FDMA (Frequency
Division Multiple Access ) would be better but not ideal.

In emergency situation novadays a cell-phone is much much better
and reliable.
