I have most of the tasks uploaded.  We are now in a no eclipse period, so we can run higher power levels.  I will be bringing the power up slowly as I watch the response.

I turned on TXB tonight in V/U mode 145.920/435.300 and instantly heard people talking.  Both transponders are running about 500 mW.  TXA is running digital telemetry, there is no uplink operational.
