AO-85 was commanded on again about 1200Z this morning. Repeater is on, but
so far no DUV telemetry, so IHU must not be working. Also, repeater isn't
dropping between uplinks as it should in this mode. We left it on, feel free
to use while you can. Reports too please!

Mark, N8MH and I did some testing tonight on AO-85 as it is almost back in
full sun. The transmitter and COR repeater came on, but not the
telemetry/IHU. Repeater sounded good but stayed keyed without an uplink
signal. We shut the transmitter back off since that was an unexpected state.
We'll do some more testing tomorrow.
