Hello all,

A quick look at the telemetry suggests that AO-16 is doing fine.  The current transmitter output power is about 1.5 Watts.  This is reduced from the earlier setting of about 1.8 Watts.

As of 21:37 UTC 27 April 2008, AO-16 is again configured for voice mode and is open for normal operations:

Uplink: 145.920 MHz FM
Downlink:  437.0260 MHz DSB (LSB and USB).

Users of AO-16 are encouraged to report any aberrant operations by either posting to the AMSAT-BB or by emailing the command team at n8mh AT amsat.org  "Aberrant operations" might include the following: complete loss of signal from the spacecraft or significant change in the transmitter frequency.

Oh behalf of the command team,

Mark L. Hammond  [N8MH]
