This fact was anticipated by interested AMSAT members many years 
prior to the launch of AO51,  with respect to 2-user FM voice.  It 
was voiced at several conventions that I attended, and some of us 
were told by some of the "powers that were" that is was "none of our 
business"!!  At that time some of us had only one vote each!!
