[amsat-bb] SO-67 Question

I have a question about the timers on SO-67.  Their configuration to drop out after a few seconds unless you transmit immediately after or upon a previous station, was that done purposely or is this a software configuration issue.  What would be the purpose of setting the transponder to act this way?  I am not stating this to criticize but get the answer to this puzzling question.

 I must say that signal levels are great with this new bird.  I have heard it using my TH-F6A with nothing more than the standard rubber antenna which is a radiating dummy load.  

Congratulations to Amsat SA on this great addition to our satellite fleet.
