[amsat-bb] AO-51 schedule note

There are presently two places people can look for AO-51 mode info, the
graphic schedule at http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/echo/ControlTeam.php and
the full text schedule at http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/echo/CTNews.php .
If you'll note the graphic schedule shows no uplink to AO-51 on the 21st.
This is only partially correct. On 6/21 we will be running AO-51 with an
alternate uplink for the ARRL Kid's Day event, and QSOs should be limited to
Kid's Day activities. This is posted in the text schedule, but there is no
way to post that important information in the graphic schedule. The intent
here is to keep the repeater free and clear for the Kid's Day participants,
and showing the uplink as off is the only way to do that in the current
graphic schedule design. If you see this type of entry in the future, please
head over to the text schedule at
http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/echo/CTNews.php to get the full story.
The mode change today was moved up ~12 hours simply because I want to have
dinner with my gravely ill father on Father's Day, and the other command
stations are not available. Again, I apologize if this has caused anyone any
inconvenience. Don't shoot me for trying to keep the users informed please.
