I noticed that the pass over my QTH ending at 1018z 17th May was in progress
when I got to this, so decided to listen for the beacon despite having very
marginal (for satellite work) antennas. The satellite was due north and I
would have preferred it being on the south side, too, so conditions surely
weren't ideal. The spacecraft was sunlit (or at least that's what my
satellite tracking software tells me) but the beacon was not there as far as
I could tell at least.

QTH JO89nt (59.826N 17.151E).
