Since last week, we have learnt a couple of things re the behaviour of the FM
payload, most notibly that the drop-out problem can be avoided as follows:
directly after an over, the Tx tail will be "active" for 3 seconds. If,
during this time, somebody starts to Tx, that person will be cut off when the
tail stops. For the time being, the cut-outs can therefore be avoided by
waiting out the 3s tail before transmitting.
This is obviously an irritation that we're still working on. Also note that
an over has a maximum permitted duration of 30s. After this, the
transmission will be terminated.
The schedule for this weekend is as follows (all times in UTC; all
activations are 15 min long):
21:11 New Zealand
