Re: AO-40 Is Just Not Any Fun





AO-40 did not have an HF transmitter at launch.  There was one in the early 
planning, but ultimately it was not included.  The two HF receivers on 21 
MHz and 24 MHz have not been tested.  They can be connected to the S2 or K 
downlinks, but their antenna is folded up under the solar panels and won't 
come out until the solar panels are opened (3-axis mode).

So there are other untested modes including two HF uplinks to either S2 or 
K downlinks, and S1/S2 uplinks to K downlink.  ... then there's the laser 
beacon.
