AO-51 September schedule



Hello all,
I posted the new schedule to http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/echo/CTNews.php 
Saturday morning. I apologize for it not being uploaded earlier. Thanks to 
the AO-51 committee for another great balance of modes this schedule.

Now for some notes on the satellite. We are currently running 370 mW on TXA 
(435.150) and 630 mW on TXB (435.300). Power levels will continue to 
increase as eclipses get shorter, leading up to 10 weeks of continuous sun 
early next year. These are going to be interesting times. Keep in mind that 
anytime we have something other than telemetry running on TXA (i.e. L/U 
repeater), we may have to interrupt it occasionally for telemetry and 
satellite maintenance. Our lead command station, Gould WA4SXM, has been 
doing an outstanding job of squeezing every last drop of power for the 
downlinks.

Enjoy the satellite, and remember it's never too early to submit your mode 
requests for October to ao51-modes@amsat.org .
