RE: UO-36



We are about to go through maximum eclipse time, and therefore minimum
power.  I have implemented an algorithm to point the satellite at the sun
during parts of the orbit that it would otherwise not get any power and this
is helping a certain amount.  However, if the swatellite is in eclipse, then
it is possible (probable) that there may not be enough power at the moment
to operate the transponder.

The lowest power point is around midnight on Sunday.

Cheers
Chris G7UPN

Just as a point of reference, I have not copied anything off UO-36
(UOSAT-12) in since I got my tower up about 10 days ago.  Maybe if Chris is
watching he can tell us the status?

Is anyone in Sothern California heard UO-36 recently?

Is this satellite on low power?

I have not been able to hear it for at least two weeks.
