AO-27's schedule basically works as follows: when it turns on it transmits
roughly 30 seconds of data, activates the repeater for 7 or so minutes, then
another 90 seconds of data before shutting off. If it appears to be dead
afterwords (ie you can't hear yourself on the bird with a 2nd radio or in
full duplex) then you caught it on the tail end of the schedule. Goto
AO27.org for the current schedule or download the Scheduler at
http://sites.google.com/site/ao27satellitescheduler/ and generate your own
schedule predictions.
