Hey Andy,

No disrespect ... but the Grand Old Girl has been in Mode A. I worked KC9ELU
this morning and AA5PK after the AO-51 pass you mention in this email, both
on Mode A.

Thanks to you for the contact on AO-51. 

Happy New Year, and 73 to all,

Tim - N3TL

David, and other AO-7 watchers,

I was hoping for Mode B or Mode A, but we got Mode "D" (435.1 MHz beacon 
Yes, I guess it just cycled into the 70-cm beacon mode for the last pass of 
SKN 2010!
At least it was a nice strong carrier, and I got in some SKN QSOs via AO-51 
just a bit earlier.

TNX to AA5PK, N3TL and K2BMI for the AO-51 SKN contacts!

73 de Andy W5ACM
