Re: FO-20 ...NON- operational !!!

FO-20 control station believes that now UVC (Under Voltage Controller)
rules FO-20. The UVC monitors battery voltage and tries to protect battery
from over dischage. Launched in Feb. 1990, FO-20 is now 10years old.
Can not expect much from its Ni-Cd :-(
This should be the cause of ON and OFF.
