To all AO7 Users:

AO7 is in Mode A this morning, the normal switch should have occurred 
around 10:50UTC, I believe that it was about this time last year when 
AO7 was "stuck" in Mode B for about 3 weeks or more.

If the satellite is going into a brief eclipse periods, there is no 
telling when the satellite will change modes, I was able to use SatPC32 
in the preview mode last year, to actually see the eclipse on AO7 and 
predict when they would end, I will run some simulations and see if 
brief eclipses are occurring.

Please feel free to post any findings on AO7 on 
/*Starcom-bb at Star-com.net*/, that is my BB that I run for satellite users.

Be sure and check both modes when the satellite is over your location!

/*You can always give Mode A a try!! it's quiet over there!*/

(look these coordinates up on /*APRS.FI _satellite mode_*/_,_ and it 
will zoom in on my antennas on my back deck!)
