AO-51 PACSAT BBS .
AO-51 was a wonderful bird .Since the end of its mission ( 2011) so much said about the missed FM repeater . But I've missed its joy since the PACSAT BBS was shutdown.
AO-51 contains a digital subsystem that transmits TLM on 70cm and provides complete PACSAT BBS that can be configured on both V and S band up-links.
Below are some photos I received from my Friends Roy / W0SL and Siegfried / DD1JSN .
Dated - 2005 via VHF/UHF FM (9600 bps AX.25).
