Al, I don't know what time you are referring to on AO-51. The first pass on the west coast (01:04Z) was OK, Had exchanges with KE5GDB and VE7VW with no problems. Good pictures both ways.
The second pass was completely quiet. I called on voice several times and sent CQ pictures with no reply
I did hear some Spanish voices in there a couple of times, and a couple of other unidentified voice transmissions.

Lots of noise on AO-51 prevented me from getting clear download of pictures. Did get two that were clear enough to see they were from WP4CNU and KB2HSH. Several interfering carriers came on several times during SSTV transmissions. Anyone who is copying pictures please let us know if we are getting through. Copies of pictures would also be appreciated. Don't know if I succeeded last night or not.
Thanks & 73,
