The easy way to see which mode it is in is check the latest log entries.  Mode B is the most popular with  stronger signals.  The semi operational part means it is only on when in sunlight. It doesn't take a lot of sunlight for it to function.  There a great bunch of guys on there.  You can actually have a conversation, and I've several three ways.  The satellite automatically switches between A and B at about 0145Z.  I was told how and why but I don't remember (senior moment).  Give it a try, there's also  the potential for a little DX (check out the footprint).  I look foward to chatting with you.
