For the purpose of Field Day, LilacSat-1 or LO-09 will be considered a
digital satellite and not a single channel FM satellite. The reasoning is
that an FM single channel satellite has an FM voice modulated signal going
up and an FM voice modulated signal coming down. With LO-90, there is an FM
voice modulated signal going up however, you must have separate equipment to
demodulate the digital signal. This will also score three points for
each digital contact that you make. Sorry for the late rule, LO-90 is a very
new satellite and mode.
