AO-51 har ett nytt schema:
Drew, KO4MA posted AO-51 schedule updates on behalf of the AO-51Operations Group. The full schedule can be seen on-line at:
Please note that the graphic schedule at the top of the page is not the complete story, and users should always consult the text portion in addition for any items that cannot be displayed in the graphic schedule.
For the next several weeks there will be a period of testing by AO-51’s command stations, cycling through many of the listed modes. Whole Orbit Data is also planned to be collected during this period. This period is indicated as all off in the graphic schedule. This is a periodic checkup as well as a further investigation into some ongoing operational issues. Drew wrote, "I intend to report on the results of the command station’s investigation, as well as explain some of the power and PL issues brought up last week on the -bb as soon as the information is collected and analyzed."
Users are welcome to operate whatever mode is active during these tests, but expect frequent mode changes. The V/U repeater on 435.300 should be available for hamfest demos on Saturday the 12th and the ever popular mode V/S returns at the end of the month.
