I just completed the weekly mode change for AO-51 just after 2200Z. We
are now running dual repeaters on 145.920/435.300 and 1268.700/435.150.
The 67Hz PL access is on for the V/U pair with a 2 minute period. Power
output is 410mw for either repeater.
AO-51 will be reentering eclipses this week or next, and we will need to
frequently interrupt the L/U repeater for telemetry. The modulation will
be left low on the repeater to make the switch from data to voice
easier. I'll try to do this primarily on the morning passes over the
East Coast, but it could happen on any US pass. It's important for us to
keep close tabs on the power situation during this period.
