AO-51 is back in to it's normal configuration with the 145.920/435.300 
repeater at 570 mw and the 1268.700/435.150 9k6 PBBS and Telemetry at 
450 mw.

For the month of January we expect to leave the satellite in this 
configuration. Sometime next week we expect to use the reversible magnet 
to reorient the spacecraft to the normal polarity favoring the northern 
hemisphere. This is dependent of the timing of some personal issues 
including the impending birth of my son :-) . Towards the end of the 
month I expect we can run some L/U voice on the 435.150 downlink between 
telemetry collections, but that is not yet reflected on the official 

Please address all AO-51 inquiries to the Operations Committee vi 
ao51-modes at amsat.org.
