ITAMSAT IO-26 status

ITAMSAT IO-26 status 21/9/99

Nearing it's 6th year in orbit (IO-26 was launched on the 26th September 1993)
ground controller IK2XRO and IW2EGC reloaded the high level code IHT and
turned on the 435,822 MHz PSK trasmitter.
Analysis of the telemetry showed an healty satellite with the battery
fully charged after 4 months of stand-by in MBL (safe) mode.
A WOD (Whole Orbit Data) survey will be started during tonight pass,
collecting data on array current, battery voltage and onboard temperature.
Following the WOD collection, we plan to activate the digipeater function,
and experiment using the APRS system.
