  1. Note to all: AO-91, as well as AO-85 (which I only just found out) has a fairly capable AFC so it will capture FM signals within many kHz for the center. That means that if you are doing work with a HT (or anything without any sort of computer aided tuning) you don’t have to worry too much about doppler. The AFC will compensate for Doppler on the uplink frequency in the 70cm band. The downlink in the 2m band inherently has less Doppler because of the lower frequency.

    This is all “supposed to”. AO-85 has a somewhat out-of-tune Rx antenna so it’s hard to work with an HT in the first place, so AO-91 will be a good chance to check out this capability. Reports welcome!
