Re: FO20 failed????



According to the Weekly Satellite Report:

"Tak, JA2PKI, reported FO-20 control station operators believe that the UVC
(Under Voltage Controller) is now regulating the transponder. The controller
monitors battery voltage and tries to protect the batteries from over
discharge."

Hi All
On the 16:43utc pass of FO20 yesterday the beacon/transponder suddenly
switched off about halfway through.I tried the transponder today on the
13:18utc pass but nothing heard! My system checked out ok ,I managed a
couple of contacts on FO29 a few minutes later.
