Ahhh, my apologies Drew.  I should have said previously uncommon modes instead of unheard of modes.  As I am relatively new to the Amateur Satellite community, I'm sure there is plenty that I am unaware of, and this is an example of that.  Again, my apologies.  I'm looking forward to seeing how things play out in the future.

I did that on AO-16 after we put it in "bent pipe" mode, although that was FM to DSB. The ISIS cubesat radios also have this ability, and I think we'll see it on some of those soon.
