Yep... sure is!

As a matter of fact, what do we need mode A satellites for either.
Lets make them all just like AO-10.  That way there no rank
beginners will ever have a chance of getting a start in satellite
ops of any kind.  Preserves the frequencies for those of us who are
the true satellite operators.

I sure am glad that the whole world doesn't think alike, and I
am grateful that there are easy "repeaters" in the sky for the
beginners and kids to learn on.  My kids included.
