Re: AO-40 schedule



Nice job, Steve. I esp like that you provided your "mode schedule" string
that you use for IT....it's a bugger to get right. I look forward to
entering it. LogSat Pro is not nearly as versatile in allowing multiple
modes in it's schedule, so I have to "cheat" with it, but it looks like you
put together a complex schedule line for AO-40 and IT, and that in itself is
an accomplishment!

Thanks for sending it to us all.
