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
