Nice try ;-)  But AO-40 doesn't support mode S/S!  According to the manual
"P3G to P3D", the following s-band uplink modes are possible:  S/V, S/U,
SX, S/K ... and it remains to see what will be implemented!

AO-40's s-band xmtr IS isolated from the S1 and S2 receivers using a
circulator on the same antenna, so...?  Maybe one of the s/c team can
illuminate on this.
