Even FM has doppler shift, It is just not as noticable as on SSB because
the descriminator (demodulator)
tracks the signal and converts the frequency/phase  modulation to
amplitude modulation. The Tone
frequency is so low, 250hz or less, that the amount of frequency shift
is on the order of millehertz. On
99.99% of the tone decoders this will make no difference.
