amsat-dl statement

Posted at request of users on IRC... message on amsat-dl.org...

Even at the expected AOS of AO-40 over Europe on Dec 17th the contact hasn't
been reestablished. The window for the emergency routine (see below) cannot
be determined exactly, so Dec 16th can be assumed as earliest possible point
of time. There are various serious reports about very weak PSK signals which
seem to be coming from AO-40. The commandteam is verifiing these reports,
investigates possible causes for the lack of transmission and is preparing
for a new contact in case of the emergency routine. After entering this
routine, AO-40 has to be reconfigured for operation with its
2-m-transmitter. This process would take some time too.
