Hello John and BB,
AO-51 is collecting telemetry, but not transmitting telemetry.
I turned off TXA last night when I switched modes as the schedule did not include the telemetry downlink.
If I use the SQRX receiver, then I need to decrease the transmitter power for the batteries to make it through eclipse.
I will experiment tomorrow increasing TXB downlink with SQRX On and TXA off.
Enjoy the new mode, great to see the good comments on the mode changes this month - Thanks.

Did anyone copy any AO-51 telemetry on the most recent (00:19z 25JUL07) North American pass?
At max elevation, the received signal strength for the voice downlink was S7 at my location (FM29), but on 435.150 beacon frequency, zip,nada, nothing.
