Hi All,

We are back in "normal" mode as of about 20:30utc 22 Dec 2010--but the L-band uplink to the PBBS is OFF for a bit so that we can try to catch up on the download of whole orbit data that has been accumulating during the S-band period.  It might remain off for a day or so, we'll see. 

We are very soon entering eclipse periods. As always, watch for announcements about any schedule changes, etc. 

Next scheduled mode change is for Straight Key Night--which is just about when eclipses start!
