The power budget on AO-51 has really been stretched with both transmitters on, so we are now in single transmitter mode. That means quite a bit more power on 435.300 (the voice repeater), which is now around 1.3W or so. We'll be in this mode for a while (until further notice).
You'll probably still hear the transmitter cycling OFF and ON around eclipse times. But most voice users will appreciate the stronger signals.
