  That is almost same in Japan. Even if our novice-class can operate
HF phone with QRP power, due to the limited condition of our lifespaces,
HF operation is not so easy. V/UHF is much popular than HF.

  And, for us Japanese and asian sat ops, Mode-A (145up/29down) or
Mode-B(435up/145down) "easy-sat"  will not be useful. Please do not
forget that the 2m/70cm band is not only for ham at Asian areas. Leagally
or illegaly, our sat-subband had occupied with prenty non-ham coms.
  If we have an Phase-3 type Mode-A sat, maybe you all of us will be
infruenced from much heavy asian QRM from 2m sat-subband. Also at the
Mode-B, we Japanese or asian hams will hear much QRM on its 2m downlink.
