You can ask the control team to open this mode again if they received enough 
request they can make it available again.

Amsat-NA has established an Operations Group and email address for AO-51 
satellite users to submit requests and ideas for the Experimenters Wednesday 
sessions. We will also take suggestions for the normal weeklong operational 
periods as well. Every member of the Operations Group will receive emails from 
this address. This is your chance, the amateur satellite user, to request from 
the AO-51 Operations Group the modes you are interested in seeing operated on 
the satellite during the weekly Wednesday sessions. Do not expect a reply to 
every email, as we will not have the time to respond to each one, but your 
input will be noted. The email address to send your requests or ideas to the 
Operations Group is:

mailto:ao51-modes at amsat.org?subject=AO51%20web%20page%20request

"It is not the class of license the amateur holds, but the class of the amateur 
that holds the license."
