Wow, you guys have been great, and thanks for all the replies!  Although I have had my ticket for over 27 years, satellites are new to me, and your advise and help is greatly appreciated!  Sorry to hear AO-27 isn't working, and that SO-50 is the only FM satellite that's operational at the moment. Looks like I decided to get into this aspect of the hobby a little late, and missed out on the other decayed satellites, and all the great contacts to Col. Wheelock back when he was on the ISS. I hope the near future will bring back into space some new FM satellites, and I will look into the SSB Satellites soon. At the moment, I don't have a all mode VHF/UHF rig, but maybe in the near future I'll be able to obtain one so I can expand my horizons even further with out hobby.Best 73 to all and again, thanks for being so inviting and helpful!FrankKB2CWNEL88QLFlorida
