AO-51 remains non-operational. We still try to restart her occasionally, in case a cell opens, but that isn't likely. Here's the original announcement from 2+ years ago: http://amsat.org/pipermail/ans/2011/000571.html
The good news is at least two Fox-1 sats will launch next year, both carrying Mode B FM repeaters, as well as at least one camera and several university experiments. There are several ways to donate to the program at http://www.amsat.org/
