Here's the start of an answer (sadly quadratic, but for N=121 I don't
think that will matter much):

#lang racket
(require unstable/sequence)
(define (subsets-of-size-2 l)
  (for*/lists (r) ([i l] [j l]
                   #:unless (eq? i j)
                   #:unless (member (cons j i) r))
    (cons i j)))

(for ([(p q) (in-pairs (subsets-of-size-2 '(A B C D E F)))])
  (printf "~a <-> ~a\n" p q))
