Hello John and BB,

AO-51 is collecting telemetry, but not transmitting telemetry.

I turned off TXA last night when I switched modes as the schedule did not 
include the telemetry downlink.

If I use the SQRX receiver, then I need to decrease the transmitter power 
for the batteries to make it through eclipse.

I will experiment tomorrow increasing TXB downlink with SQRX On and TXA off.

Enjoy the new mode,  great to see the good comments on the mode changes this 
month - Thanks.
