Indeed we have discussed it, and will try it. To be honest, it didn't make as much difference temperature-wise as I thought it would on AO-51, but it's worth a shot.

  Hi Drew,

  I'm sure you and the command team have already looked into this, but are there any "knobs" to turn that could indirectly warm up the satellite a bit?  What comes to mind is to reduce the Transmit power.  I think you used the reverse process to cool off AO-51 earlier this year (higher power draw cools off solar cells).

  Just a thought,
