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??
