Hi Pete,

FO-29 beacon was fine this morning. Transmitting CW @ 1123 UTC 1/21/02.
FO-20 beacon was fine this morning. Transmitting solid carrier @ 1146 UTC 

FO-20's beacon has been a solid carrier for quite some time. Both were found 
435.795 +/- doppler (~10 KHz max).

FO-20 has had some battery problems. FO-29 has been pretty solid.
