Re: AO51 on?



I can 2nd that. It's on and working as of the 1610Z pass here.

Remember the .150 transmitter is set up as a QRP only repeater. 10 watts, 
handheld or omni antennas only.

Also, remember there are lots of other working satellites up there. 
Concentrating on just AO-51 like I've noticed many groups doing is in my 
opinion a recipe for failure.

Don't transmit unless you can hear the downlink, don't CQ, do use full 
duplex, and do keep the exchanges short, and enjoy Field Day.
