Hello All,

A few months ago, I had stopped working the AO-51, why I could not listen me on the downlink. I was a little frustrated because I can't heard me via AO-51. I thought it was because of software problems and changes to the settings of the satellite. There are 4 days ago, I discovered that the problem was in one of the cables from my UHF antenna. That would not let me listening to the stations that called via AO-51. In these last four days in several orbits I was able to keep QSO with our friend Hugo - EA8HB in Las Palmas Island with strong signals. And today in orbit 29,028, at 21:11 UTC, I heard the N1EL calling me, which is 3.466.9 miles of my station. I see that the AO-51 continues "brave" in the space. Congratulations to the AO-51 Control Team by incessant work.
