Mode-A without a 10m pre-amp is like using internet without a computer; I
don't think you'll find many folks *not* using them.

Easy to home-construct too (especially with the Amsat-UK PCB); a single
MOSFET (eg 3N201), a couple of toroids, and a handful of easy-to-get
components does the job and still comes out pretty small. 

Mind that you don't transmit into it :)
