SUNSAT Status



We have just commanded SUNSAT and received and recorded four minutes of
telemetry data from SUNSAT at 1200.  The magnetometer data looks
acceptable which is part of the structure which can be the most
influenced by the launch vibrations.  Further satellte checking out will
be done over the next few passes before the detumbling will commence.
