RUDAK will be ON the following days this week:

ECLIPSES
*********
Starting August 13th, AO-40 will begin to experience prolonged eclipses 
(see table below).  In order to deal with these, we will need to turn the 
S2 transmitter off during the eclipse period.  To do this will require two 
lines of the scheduler.  Therefore, we will need to terminate the VRx 
Wednesday session during this time. The schedule will be modified near the 
end of this week.  The VRx session will be active this week.
