RE: AO-27



Jordan,

Yes, and No.

AO-27 is available on daylight passes over the Northern Hemisphere.  The
"TEPR" States describe the amount of time (in minutes) when the spacecraft
enters and leaves sunlight.  TEPR numbers are adjusted every few months to
account for the seasonal North/South movement of the latitudes where AO-27
enters and exits sunlight.  

The above paragraph is from the AMSAT web page on AO-27.
TEPR is Timed Eclipse Power Regulation. This boils down to it comes on
about 10-15 minutes after exiting eclipse for about 20-25 minutes and
these periods are adjusted every few months.

Unfortunately this seems to indicate AO-27 is not available in the
Southern Hemisphere where you are located. You might try SO-35 depending
on it's schedule and listen for Stensat's availability for FM operation.
