Hi Gould, thanks for your mail and efforts in switching the satellite in mode L/S. Now AO-51 is in mode L/S and I just had a nice QSO with OZ1MY and IK1SOW. Thanks 73, Fer IW1DTU

I sent the command to switch the input to TX B again on my last pass (12 degrees).
Please give L/S a try. Due to the mode configuration, I can't get any feedback on the command reception.

Probably I am wrong and still sleeping but this early morning A0-51 at 05:30 UTC was not in mode L/S according to the published schedule. Signal in S band was loud and clear as usually but I didn't succeed. According to some particular QRM it could be in mode V/S - Sorry but at present my V/U antenna are inoperative due to servicing so I couldn't check. Any other reports ?
