Great news, Wouter.

Sadly 0830 - 1010 UTC is middle of the night for N. America.  But I suspect there will be night owls here to check it out.

Dear all,

I would like to inform you all that tomorrow, Monday 4th of may, there is a
fairly high chance we will be allowed to test the AMSAT-NL transponder for
one full orbit.

Details will be made available on short notice, but we are aiming for an
activation starting at ~08:30 UTC and lasting until ~10:10 UTC.

The aim is to characterize the power budget on board EO-79. So we encourage
the usage of this new transponder. Please also report the QSOs and signal
reports to pa3weg at amsat.org
