Re-post from Amsat's twitter:

"AO-51 now shutting off tx soon after eclipse, due to batt voltage 
dropping below regulator threshold. Recovers to 1w in sun."

Were people still using this bird in eclipse with only 2 out of 6 usable 
cells? Perhaps this bird needs to be put on a schedule like AO-27. Can 
that be done?
