The repeater on AO-51 will be off for a little while. Meanwhile, the 9600 baud downlink (only) on 435.150 is running at very high power, so it might be a good time to try your 9600 baud receive setups. Please do not attempt any uplinks until the repeater is back on.

As of about 1200Z this morning the 145.920/435.300 repeater is back on and open for use. If everything goes right the reload should be completed today. We'll stay in this mode for a few days, and I should have a new schedule posted by this evening for December. Thanks for your patience while the command team worked on this unplanned reload this weekend.
