Emne: [amsat-bb] AO-7 Mode A/B

Not having much experience working the SSB birds, can anyone give me a rough
schedule of when AO-7 goes from mode B to A and vice versa, and what mode it
is in right now.  I am supposed to work a SSB pass with a guy this coming
Monday night around 2300z, and we only have mode B equipment.  Is there any
way to get a general idea/guess of what more it will be in?  I don’t want to
even mess with hauling equipment around if it won’t be in mode B.
