Hi All,

This morning AO-51 was down on the early AM pass.  I reset it, and decreased power out.  One orbit later, it is apparently down again (another battery trip).  There just isn't much left in the battery. 

It will this afternoon before one of us (command stations) can turn it back on.  

It is likely that we'll be going to PL tone activation soon.  Please check your radio memories and PL tones; it'll be 67 Hz once we activate it. 

We'll provide updates here on the BB.
