From their website:

Command Team and Operations Group AO-51 News
AO-51 crashed May 16, and reloading has already been initiated. Please stand by until myself or one of the other command stations releases the bird back to normal use.

Can we get on AO-27 and wish AO-51 a quick recovery in case it is listening?

Drew sent out email last night saying the voice repeeater was back up.  I plan on visiting it in 2 hours when it comes by and seeing if it wants to chat :-)

I just now heard AO-27 and someone there said AO-51 was back but a little lower sig than normal.

OH, I heard this with a 2 M "J" hooked up to my 731a on 435...inside the house!

The output power is about 600mw, compared to about 800mw last month. We did have the modulation setting down too low however, and that was fixed tonight.

Is AO-51 down again? Had nearly an overhead pass at 08:00 local time but didn't heard the bird.
