Hi Clint,

It probably will be but there are no guarantees until we get a handle on how the satellite is going to react to the lack of eclipses. This is why we haven't published a schedule yet. We may have to switch things around if it gets too hot.

I know that makes planning tough but the health of the satellite is top priority. If it is on, the downlink should be as strong as you've ever heard it.
