[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.

73, Drew KO4MA
