Hello Robert,

You are correct.

AO-51 will return to 'normal' V/U analog and V/U digital modes around 0510Z 
4 Oct 2007.

So for about 5 hours, only North America will have transmissions from AO-51.

As Drew posted on Oct 2,
"Since there is no way to store audio onboard the satellite, we are relaying
it from ground stations across the US and Canada. I offered it to some
European stations who declined due to differences in amateur radio
regulations in their countries.However if there are any well equipped AO-40
class L band stations with the ability to playback an audio .wav file that
are available between the start and finish of the event, and that are
personally known to me, I will share the information and file with them.
Interested stations should contact me directly, as soon as possible."
