AO-40 Update, 2003-08-10




K Band downlinks have now restarted around apogee.
Note that from MA 124 to 126 the passbands are off.

The K Band transmitter has a hard-limiting AGC. Please reduce uplink power 
when the K band transmitter is active.  CW, especially, should be very low 
power to prevent distorting the K band downlink.
