AO51 still appeared to be down during the 1922z pass.  I only monitored half 
of the pass, but I never heard a carrier.

Hello All,

We are receiving reports that AO-51 appears to be down.  Hopefully one
of us can get it going again this afternoon/evening.

Eclipses are still getting longer, and the sun angle is getting worse,
too.  It probably has experienced a low battery trip (least we hope
it's that simple...)

Please watch and post on http://oscar.dcarr.org/
