Remember that you need a PL of 67 Hz to access AO-51 in mode J-FM
(except in QRP mode).

Please, especially if you haven't worked a given satellite in mode
J-FM before, make sure you can hear well enough copy callsigns before
transmitting.  There might be occasions on SO-50 when you're the only
one on, but over the 'States, this is rather rare on AO-51, especially
in high power mode.

We're having problems with dead carriers on AO-51 this week, where
sometimes even the regulars with good antenna setups can't get in due
to interference from stations without PL.  Please listen first and use
the correct PL.

73's and good luck!
