Not that I'm aware of. Ironically, I also have an email asking if the power was increased after that short telemetry session.
Every pass now with 51 is a bonus. It should be inoperative by all measures with 2 of the 6 cells shorted.

>Is it just me or has something happened to the power level on AO-51 recently? Ever since Frank & Clayton (K4FEG & W5PFG) 'broke' it Monday evening on the 2130Z pass (just kidding guys), my receive audio has been 'scratchy' like I'm not getting enough signal into the receiver. Nothing has changed on my end and though I usually run mobile, I was sitting in a parking lot for that pass instead of driving down the road, I'm just curious if anything got changed during the reset.
