Thanks to our many friends for their posts about AO-51 activity!  It is very helpful.  I think our international colleagues are winning by a landslide...

I must admit a bit of disappointment though that many passes over the East coast of the US go without a report...*please* consider posting that AO-51 was active.  Just one report is helpful and confirms that the bird remains active.

Did anybody work AO-51 during the 4:45pm pass today??
