Re: AO10 when?



I was digging around today looking at AO-10 info. I had never seen any
reference before to a L/U transponder on AO-10, but did today at
http://www.ee.surrey.ac.uk/SSC/SSHP/data_ao10.html

Frequency plan: Transponder U: 435.1 MHz (uplink), 145.9 MHz (downlink),
Bandwidth +/- 75 kHz. Transponder L: 1269.45 MHz (uplink), 436.55 MHz
(downlink), bandwidth +/- 400 kHz. Two beacons adjacent to passband.

If the antennas sometimes flip from hi to low gain randomly, could the
transponder have also flipped from mobe B to L/U?

Just wishful thinking probably....
