Re: AO-7 mode B


According to the AO-7 Resource Log that I have been running for a while, it 
appears to be stuck in Mode B for about the last 4 weeks and not in Mode A 
at all.  I posted a notice about this about 2 weeks ago on the 
AMSAT-BB.  While it's possible that it may be in Mode A when we aren't 
hearing it, it appears to be a statistical anomaly.

Prior to about 4 weeks ago the satellite was roughly 51%-49% Mode A.  Now 
it's swung to about 32/64 Mode B.  This is not completely scientific 
because there are probably people who are Mode B enabled (people with Icom 
910H for example) but it still seems to be a significant swing.
