Re: UO-36 off?

Hi Tyler,

My Wisp MSPE log shows Oct. 9 13:00 UTC pass as the last one to grab any 
data from UO-36 on the east coast of the US.

I asked about this several days ago, and got one reply "it's working" and 
another that said "nothing heard either."  The "it's working" was from 
someone in Europe I'm pretty sure, while the "nothing heard" was from 
another stateside station.

So, I've not copied any data from it in about 9-10 days.

I was a bit troubled when the weekly AMSAT bulletin reported the "it's 
working" information in the UO-36 update, while others of us said it wasn't 
downlinking data over the US.  It's a bit misleading I think.

In any event, it must be due to power budget, as it inactivity in the past 
has been as well.

Hopefully things will improve...it's a fun bird to work!
