Re: Mode-B vs Mode-J VERSUS Mode-S

And Fred, correct me if I am wrong, but is 1269 allocated everywhere in 
the world to hams?  I forget the reason why there's no L band downlink 
but I thought it had something to do with allocations in some parts of 
the world.

I probably have it wrong, but if I don't it would be  a shame to lock 
out part of the world's hams with just an L band uplink.
