KO-23 quality

For those guys who (like me) had abandoned KO-23 until the spacecraft
gets back in eclipses (because of wide deviation) may I suggest you take
another look at the bird.

I just had an almost perfect pass. I don't know why this is although I 
note that the frequency is about 5 KHz lower than I would usually have 
expected; possible reasons for this are i) its a different transmitter, 
and ii) maybe the fault fixed itself although the deviation is still wide
enough that an extra frequency offset is useful. Instantrak tells me that 
the s/c is *still* in permanent sunlight.
