Actually, I think we are both right, it doesnt matter as long as people
follow the convention.  

I was thinking of newcomers taking the more natural approach and
tuning their RECEIVER to match a QSO.   Then Mode A has the worse problem
with sliding QSO's and this is solved by a factor of 5 by having the
uplink on 10m as I was proposing for a newcomers satellite.

>From what I see here on the BB, I had gathered that educating newcomers to
the proper Doppler convention was a never ending task... So minimizing it
through mode design would be an advantage for newcomers.

Nice topic.  Thanks.
