As I understand it, the JA's do not use Mode B on AO-7 because of a 
perceived issue with the uplink being outside of the post-launch 
satellite bands. However, Yoshi would be legal to use Mode B on AO-7 
under his KH0 call as I see it. Our FCC waiver for AO-7 Mode B is still 
in effect. That may give him a little more DX if he will try it.
