You can get away without Doppler tuning on 2m, provided the frequency accuracy
of your radios and the gear on board the spacecraft is spot on, and you're
prepared to tolerate a little distortion at the pass extremes.

Not for inband operation, unless you have a set of cavities handy.  Your own
uplink will desense the downlink, but using 2 rigs is still one way to get the
odd split.

Crossband is much easier to work QSK, I do that all the time on the FM birds,
unless I'm stuck with a single HT.

As for the odd split, I have one rig that will do it, no questions asked, and a
second one that can be coaxed into it (just alters a global repeater split
setting that affects all memories).
