Hello everyone, 

I know it is fathers day, but I have a question for the BB'S, Can we 
check to see if AO7 is in Mode A today? 

I have reports from Europe that it was not heard in Mode B but my 
compatriot in Europe does not have mode A capabilities. 

I have been doing yard work this morning in advance of rain so I missed 
the morning passes over the USA, I will be on later to see if we have 
had a switch. 

While during this Eclipse Cycle, AO7 has been coming up in Mode B since 
May 21, 2013, I have been advised that it is a purely random chance that 
it will come up in one mode or the other. There are periods of full 
eclipse lasting 9 or more minutes over Antarctica and maybe this was a 
random switch to Mode A. 

I will be monitoring the 1852UTC pass over EM55aj84ta to see what I 
copy, it is a 2 degree pass for me so it is not my best pass, any 
reports would be appreciated.
