The command team could really use your help. If you work AO-51 (or hear it) and there isn’t a recent entry, please make a report entry here http://oscar.dcarr.org/ so we know all is well.
Things are touch-and-go now that we are experiencing eclipses, and reports on the OSCAR Status Page that the bird is up and functional are extremely helpful.
We do expect the transmitter to go OFF during eclipse, but eclipses are only a couple minutes or less at the moment.
Thanks for your help!
