Thanks to you and everyone for your efforts. It's been 11 months since my first-ever satellite contact. In that time, I believe this is only the third time that AO-51 has suffered an issue that required a software reload. Given the tremendous conditions that little satellite and all the others endure non-stop in orbit, its record of service is remarkable to me.
I appreciate your efforts and those of the other control operators very much.
73 to all,
Tim - N3TL
