Hello Greg and BB,
I was doing some experimenting and TXB in V/U mode (435.300 MHz downlink
was off last night on the evening passes.)
TXA in L/U was operational.
I turned TXB back on this morning o the 1300Z pass. I plan no further
experiments this week, maybe one. So the more popular U/V repeater should
be on for the next week or so.
On Sunday night (US East Coast time) AO-51 will return to 'normal' mode
TXA 70cm digital downlink
TXB U/V repeater
AO-51 Command Station
