Looking back at the original question,
it sounds like G7MRV is seeking a digital mode
that is popular enough to provide a QSO whenever
he is operating the demo station. Rather than
relying on random luck, though, perhaps you could also
set up some skeds. When the time approaches, if
you can post the details on the forum, maybe some of
us could listen for your station and help provide some
contacts on PSK31 or whichever mode you decide to use.
I don't know if they have this in the UK, and maybe this
is in the works already, but it might be possible to set
up the demo as a special event station. That always seems
to generate a lot of interest.

Where is all the PSK?  I used to hear a lot of it, but I haven't heard any here in months, and I both listen and call CQ on 14.070  and 7.035 at all times of the day.  I hear nothing and end up going back to CW.  I do sometimes hear some RTTY but HRD cannot seem to decode anything that makes any sense.

G7MRV I suggest you include PSKReporter in your demo, if you will have a good Internet connection. It's very visual, like WSPR but even more interactive as you can demonstrate it during QSOs. See http://pskreporter.info/pskmap.html and the instructions one level up at http://pskreporter.info
 
K8CMO you may want to make use of PSKReporter as well, to ensure you're being heard and to determine if you're hearing stations you should hear. PSK31 is very active night or day.

From a hearing impaired perspective the easiest/popular modes to identify and use would be:
- PSK modes 31 being most popular
- Hellschreiber
- RTTY


These modes are all ones you can pick rapidly with your eyes. The rest, you cannot hear them, take lots of guessing. Heck even listening you have a hard time discerning them.

I'd start with popular and visually easy to ID.
