Why wouldn't 10 FM is be permissible?  It's a voice mode - and even 
though the OHQP gurus were thinking Silly Sideband because of myopia, I 
don't see why contacts made via 10 metre Funny Modulation would be 
disqualified.  Of course, if you had both SSB and FM, they'd both be 
voice modes so you wouldn't be able to contact a station on 10 FM and 10 

I'll let the esteamed high honchos who generate the rules give a 
definitive answer, but that's my opinion, which has been diametrically 
opposite of the rule makers in the past, but in the past I've prevailed 
upon one or two instances.

Operating as N8Q in HENRy county during OQP 2010

p.s. I don't have a 10 metre FM rig anymore.  I couldn't even give it 
away, much less sell it, so it's in the midst of Mount Rumpke in 
HAMIlton county (The county dump site)  Gee, since it was built in the 
1950's it might even have had some oil filled (PCB filled?) condensers 
and transformers  (yup, in those daze they called those thing 
condensers, not capacitors.!)   It had lots of those things we now call 
glow bugs, but in that day they were called vacuum tubes.
