TiungSat update

Over the past few days, and for the next few days, TiungSat is pitched over
at 90 degrees for most of the time.  It pitches back to nadir pointing for a
few minutes every now and then while we are calirating the imaging system.

This pitching is to allow us to gather more science data with the CEDEX
payload with the satellite in a non-nadir mode.  It does have the side
effect that the antennas are not pointing down, so signals are not the best
at the moment.

Commissioning is proceeding well and so far all systems are operating 100%.
