FM on analog birds

The thing to remember is that this is not about "flaming" anyone.  The analog
transponders are optimized for analog use.  The FM transponders are optimized
for FM use.  By sticking to the appropriate mode, there is more room for
everyone to "play" and get along in a positive way.

Using FM on an analog bird to talk to a friend may mean that a dozen other
amateurs are "bumped" from communicating effectively on that satellite.
Basically, it's just not an efficient and appropriate use of the resource.
