Your suggestion was discussed by the command team, but we're not in a 
position to act on it right now.

To run the S-band downlink without constant manual supervision from command 
stations, we need some new spacecraft software. Unfortunately, there's a 
heavy overlap between the microsat software team and the P3D software team 
(and for other satellite projects as well). Getting new software for AO-16 
is a bit slow right now, and not really anybody's first priority.
