Hi All,

AO-51 was changed a bit early today, at 21:10 UTC 4 April.   It is currently in "normal mode", with 435.300 (145.920 uplink) running about 480 mW (and 435.150 running about the same). We hope to catch up on some telemetry during this week.  If we don't need any telemetry, it is likely that we'll increase the power on 435.300. The schedule for the rest of the month should be posted soon--sorry for the delay.

Beginning with May 2nd, periods of eclipse return to AO-51.  We'll have to watch the satellite carefully and make some modifications to what we've been doing over the last several months.  More details as we get closer to the eclipses...
