This evening I enabled the power management software on AO-51. If 
everything works right, the repeater should run at 1.01 watt while in 
sun, and 290 milliwatt while in eclipse and after exiting eclipse until 
the batteries recover to ~7.9 volts. Observations from the southern 
hemisphere while entering and leaving eclipse would be very helpful...we 
know it is getting used from the WOD files. I'll post a map where the 
satellite is being used soon.
