RE: UO-36 status?



UO-36 is severely power limited for a large amount of time.  Therefore we
need to come up with a new protocol to allow the downlink to only be
switched on over active groundstations.  I'm working on this at the moment,
however I'm travelling quite a lot just now so it will be another month or
so before I can start testing on the satellite.

Once we get this going, it will be running 38k4 downlink, and will be
available when spacecraft resources (primarily power) permit.

Cheers
Chris

Is there anything more recent on this than the message on ANS
that has been the same for so many weeks?

I have a 736 on the bench right beside me with a Symek 38.4k board
in it (which receives test signals very nicely), and had difficulty
convincing myself yesterday that there was anything other than noise
coming out of it during a couple of passes of UO-36.

It might be nice to know if there was anything actually there to
receive... :-)
