Hello Drew,
                 Frei Island is located out of the footprint of the ISS, Pacsat, and AO-27 is invariably switched off by the time it gets up here ... therefore, the APRS mode has never been a viable propasition for me.

I was just reading Bob's WB4APR many web pages re: APRS and he refers to ECHO (now AO-51) frequently ... mentioning the APRS system.

I can't recall seeing AO-51 in the V/U (J) mode for APRS operations.

Bob gives the "impression" that this mode can always be operated regardless of which other mode the satellite is in.

Is this true? ... and can AO-51 *ALWAYS* be used as an APRS sat ???.
