Hello All,

This morning I turned AO-16 ON in voice mode around 1020utc.  The output power is reduced a bit and is reported as 700 mW by the telemetry.

It is possible that it will cease transmitting; any reports that help narrow down an approximate time for such an event will be helpful.  Also, reports of its continued operation will also be appreciated. 

If you hear AO-16 in voice mode, free to use it.  If you hear it "hummmming" in digital mode, please do not transmit to the satellite.

AO-16 Uplink:   145.920 MHz FM
AO-16 Downlink: 437.0260 MHz DSB (LSB and USB)

On behalf of the command team,

Mark L. Hammond  [N8MH]
