I have to agree.  Mode B proved to be miles ahead over VK as well, from both
an accessibility perspective (fewer stations were "alligators", while in J,
a lot of beginners have receive difficulties) and QRM (UO-14 receives severe
QRM over SE Asia, SO-35 in mode B had none).

They could come to VK and listen to any UO-14 pass and hear the Asian
rabble, day or night.  Mode B is clean.  Sure, 2m presents its own
challenges (e.g. pagers, local intermods, etc), but these are usually less
serious, and are restricted to local effects, not every satellite user.

A mode B linear LEO would be interesting as well.  I'm not sure how I'll go
getting power up to a bird on mode B SSB, but it'll be worth a try. :)
