We let PSAT go into its first eclipse season with everything on. Not a good idea. Now it is trying to dig out of its power hole.
The digipeater is turned off to conserve power, but we need users on the PSK31 uplink to not transmit so that the UHF transmitter does not come up.

It is the PSK31 that is running it down on every orbit.
