The upload/download section is for store and forward digital mailbox
satellites. None are currently in operation, but AMSAT Field Day rules
still allow messages to be sent and received for points should any be
available in the future.

A few recently launched satellites have indicated this as a possible
operating mode for a secondary mission, but I haven't seen any
information on when these expected to be enabled or even the
modulation and data format required.
