The demise of AO-51

Well, I just read on that AO-51 has gone "End of Mission". Meaning , it's done. Three of the six batteries are either not holdng charge or shorted. The ground crew has not heard it in a while, and is unable to communicate with it. I never got a chance to get a 2 way QSO on it. I did hear my call sign on one of the recordings, and someone did call back to me, but I never heard it when I was working it. Well... it time to look into the other LEO birds.
