AO-40 S-Band beacon query



Am I to understand the S-mode beacon will be activated at MA20-MA26 until
further notice or was it only a one-time deal?

There was a message from Yoshihiro Imashi stating that the east coast US
will be in range during MA20-MA26 at 0900Z tonight.  Is this correct?
According to NOVA using element set 6 and ALON/ALAT 260/-9, the earliest
pass I get:

 Time(L)  Azim.  Elev.   Range  Height Mode  SSPLat SSPLon  Ph  Squint

All time and dates are local EST based on a Pittsburgh, PA observer and only

Is this correct?

Thanks for any info.
