Well , AO-100 has wide and narrow band areas, there are already VARA SAT , which has extended AFC and some
link delay measuring modules as well , will also work with any steam powered ssb set ups that need very long tx/rx times , that is more suited to the sat link, as was designed specially for the sat , but , no reason why the high speed varafm-96 could not be used in the wide band section ? I would think the power density of a wide band FM signal is similar to the TV broadcasts ? and zero netting problems , being fm ?
Ive never seen the AO-100 transponders full , there is a ROS-HF mode qso running, with prog set to 2 meters
no different to the on-air modem, just the highest qrg coded these days .. and with ROS -HF more than one qso can be running at the same time in the same channel
