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.
