What will use the L/S antennas?

I have read some of what might use the L/S antennas on this module - "wideband" and video operations, continuous transponder operation, etc. I have L and S equipment, but nothing for video. I can currently do only FM on L-band (Icom IC-12GAT HT) and almost any mode with my S-band downconverter connected to a suitable receiver (HT for FM comms, all-mode receiver or transceiver for SSB/CW, etc.). So I guess I could answer "yes" to the question based on equipment I have, but would have to answer "no" or maybe "not yet" based on what little I've seen about the use of those antennas.

hardware poll

I was just looking to see who had 1.2 GHz and 2.4 GHz tranceivers and antennas that could talk to the ISS as it passed overhead.

It would be some mean doppler. Eight times what it is on two meters for the 1.2 GHz band.
