It does work acceptably if you know the limitations and can work around them.

Personally I haven't counted out either system and neither has AMSAT-DL yet. 
The matrix still shows "more testing" for both systems. In fact, I'm hoping 
to try a C uplink before too long. I recently upgraded my 5760 terrestrial
