Re: AO-27



Uhhhh....no Bruce.

AO-21 was attached to a larger russian satellite. AO-27 is a different bird.

AO-27 had some battery problems, and it's orbit drifted into full sun early
this year. The controllers have offered no updates on their website (
www.ao27.org ) since April 5, and no one has heard it in quite a while.

73, Drew KO4MA
