Re: GO-32 Techsat-1B

 There is nuch chatter about GO-32 on the UO-22 BBS. Sys Ops have been
turning GO-32 on and  and off for a  couple of week's or so. Other
comment's noted,  the downlink is 3k low, speculation that the OBC crashed
and their reloading. Check out the messages on UO-22 for the full story. I'm
going to listen tonight, there is a pass about 0000z.
