I have taken one final look at the time at which AO7 will come back into
full sunlight and will not lose the sun any more this season.
My predictions show that at /*22:55:32UTC today, AO7 will go back into
full illumination*/ and no further eclipse's will occur until the
Eclipse Cycle begins again next May 2014 (Exact date to be determined).
/If the 24 hour Mode switch occurs on time, the satellite will be over
North America and I will barely still have a footprint on the satellite
on August 2, 2013 at 22:55:32UTC. //
Just as a matter of intellectual curiosity, /*if any North American
operators can monitor AO7 on August 2, 2013 at 22:55:32 UTC*/, I would
like to see if the /*Mode A*/ switch occurs. I will very close to my LOS
when the switch will possibly happen and I may not be able to hear it.
Any other reports would be appreciated so if the mode switches have
started back up we can track the daily time of the switch for everyone.
I like Mode A so I hope to catch a few stations there when the mode
I hope the last 10 weeks of AO7 comments have been to much of a bore to
