This morning I switched the satellite back to "normal" mode for a bit
with the 145.92/435.3 repeater on, set power levels on both 435.3 and
435.15 transmitters to 450mw and 500mw, and reenabled the SSB/FM
repeater. I believe the higher power on the SSB/FM repeater running
alone was causing some of the interference issues and odd behavior we
have been hearing and getting reports about. I did also briefly listen
to the 145.88 uplink in FM and there was non-amateur QRM there.
Let me know if this sounds more like the way this mode sounded last time
we ran it.
Twitter and the AMSAT AO-51 schedule page also updated.
