AO-27 Turned on today. Seems good on the bootloader
If anyone has contacts into CelesTrak to get AO-27 back into the
amateur.txt file it would help some of the control operators stations.
Our e-mails have gone unanswered.

Dave Webb, KB1PVH, sent a tweet earlier this month to @TSKelso at CelesTrak
and AO-27 is back in the list. Control operators can now track AO-27 and
attempt to load high level code.

It is very important amateur radio operators DO NOT USE AO-27, the
satellite is in MAINTENANCE MODE ONLY. Attempting to use the satellite or
randomly transmitting on the uplink frequencies as the satellite passes
nearby does interfere with control operators attempting to upload commands
and software.
