Sunsat SO-35 active on weekdays

Hi all,

Due to an improvement in its power budget, Sunsat's Mode B repeater 
will now also be enabled on most weekday evenings.  A schedule of the 
active passes can be found at <http://sunsat.ee.sun.ac.za/ham1.htm>.

GPS data is currently collected on Mondays.  It takes as much as 
twelve hours to fully recover the state of charge after these 
experiments.  Hence the repeater will not be active on Mondays.

This service will continue if it does not affect daily house keeping 
activities or the functioning of other payloads.  Please note that a 
software update will take place soon and that the GPS schedule is 
being reviewed.  Weekday activations might be cancelled without prior 
warning.  However, weekend schedules will be adhered to as before.

A summary of Sunsat's modes and frequency allocations is available at 
<http://esl.ee.sun.ac.za/~lochner/sunsat/modes.html>.  As indicated, 
specific modes may be scheduled for special events.  Please make the 
arrangements well in advance.
