Can anyone tell me if when operating odd-split (rx on 440, then when you press the PTT is switches to 2m. Aka half-duplex) using the 857 if it is possible to control not only the downlink, but also the uplink when you press the PTT?
5 in em55 starts this afternoon 24:00,UTC time 1 June . FM and SSB birds.Skeds can be made.
Any donations will got to AMSAT
To see the rules go to QRZ and look up WA4NVM or WA4HFN
Thanks and good hunting
Heh...wrong month ;)

Observers are still encouraged to continue reports on dcarr Sat Status page.
It will be several hours before the bird is visible here; we'll turn it on again--perhaps on the 1515utc pass here, or the one after.

AO-51's computer has been running for over 5 hours now. We have left the
satellite in repeater mode 145.88/435.15 for the time being, at over 2
watts. We are very surprised by this development to say the least.
Without Whole Orbit Data we are flying a bit blind, so would really like
to know what the satellite is doing in eclipse. I'm assuming the
transmitter is cutting out, but who knows? Cell 3 is reporting 0.0
volts, so it's clear it has shorted completely.
Please, everyone, everywhere, listen to 435.150 the next 24 hours and
send your reports to me or to the -bb. Southern hemisphere observations
are most very welcome.

Thanks to whoever kept AO51 running for us out here in the
western USA to use during the 2300 UTC pass. Hopefully
there is a way to keep it going longer, allowing for more of
the world to get a chance to still use this satellite. It sounded
pretty good here.

My XYL and I saw Endeavour and the ISS in close formation at 30 degrees
elevation on the 04:50 am pass over Maryland this morning, both objects
equally bright and separated by about half the diameter of the full moon. The
final separation burn occurred at 04:38 am, and NASA TV announced a separation
distance of 13,500 feet ten minutes later at 05:00 am.

DOUBLE FLYBY ALERT: Space shuttle Endeavour undocked from the International
Space Station on Sunday evening, May 29th, at 11:55 pm EDT. This sets the
stage for a series of beautiful double flybys: The shuttle and station will
soar through the night sky side-by-side in advance of Endeavour's final
landing on June 1st. Check the Simple Satellite Tracker to see if you are
favored with an apparition: http://spaceweather.com/flybys
