Hi all,
It appears over the past few months, control operators have been working on
the old bird as seen here http://www2.umbrasi.com/ . Im still not sure if
its fully operational yet, im going to listen for it tomorrow, you should
do the same too. As for keps, im using the keps generated off of N2YO, not
sure how accurate they are but im using them. Looks like they finally got a
update in, as its been over a year since the last update :). Let everyone
know on the BBS if you hear it or not. I have not talked on this satellite
for 5 years now! Hopefully more memories to come.

AO-27 Turned on today. Seems good on the bootloader
If anyone has contacts into CelesTrak to get AO-27 back into the
amateur.txt file it would help some of the control operators stations.
Our e-mails have gone unanswered.
