Yesterday, 30 July 2012, on the 19, 21 and 23utc passes AO-7 was in Mode B and performing like it used to. It obviously had more power and although you could make it FM, the bird handled it with grace. It was workable to the north of my qth over the NWT which is not usually the case. Let's hope it stays in this condition for many years to come.
