Good going! 2m SSB "used to be" very, very popular in the mid-70s through the mid-90s. You'd think it should be even more popular today, as so many new rigs on the market include 2m SSB standard -- but it's not. I suspect part of that was dropping the code requirement so many Techs became Generals pretty easily and jumped on HF, and part may be the proliferation of antenna restrictions that make it difficult for people to install antennas that work well enough to make 2m SSB "fun." I've been on 2m since 1966 (at first, only AM and CW, added SSB in about 1970) and back then "everybody" put up a good horizontally polarized 2m beam on a rotator. I mean, most already had this because they were already on AM, so to add SSB they just had to add equipment but they already had the antennas. Today...not so much.
