Hi Drew,

AO-51 was off at AOS but turned on OK with short burst of tone at 0748UT.
No problems from then on although there was one short drop-out even when I
had tone on.  Worked VKs OK. Two stations with tone and two without.  One
drop-out easily fixed for a non tone station with a short tone burst.
Still going OK with the VK's at LOS here at around 0754UT.

PL is on as of about 2215Z. Before LOS I heard it drop twice for a 
second or two until it heard a valid tone again. This will happen about 
every 120 seconds. Reports are welcome, especially from remote users/areas.
