AO-40 MA and updated ALON/ALAT

Hi All,

There has been some debate about the MA according to AO-40 telem, and the MA
indicated by various tracking programs. I have checked with the command
stations and SINCE the full flight software was uploaded yesterday the MA
indicated in the telemetry is more or less correct. The MA indicated on the
first orbits after control was regained may be slightly out.

The current best guess for ALON/ALAT is 260/2

The best chances for capturing telemetry from AO-40 will be soon after
perigee, i.e. MA 0 to 32

The centre frequency of the S2 MB beacon is between 2401.322 and 2401.328
without Doppler.

Good luck on your captures!
