Hey everyone,

For those of you who didn't hear the pass, the ability to reach AO-51 vaporized about 2/3 through this last orbit up North America from the south, thanks to a carrier or some kind of interference stronger than I have ever heard. Whatever captured the satellite's uplink wiped out every signal trying to reach the satellite, based on what I heard from EM84.

I would direct this message to the control team and not post it to the BB if I believed for one second that what resulted in complete jamming of the satellite was not intentional and malicious. 

I believe that it was.
