RS-15 datapoint

Tonight's passes of RS-15 started out with a strong beacon transmitting
telemetry at 0400, by the 0605 pass over North America the beacon had
degraded to a continuous carrier lasting upwards to 30 seconds.  The
frequency shifted up and down quite a bit as you listen to it.  On the
0605 pass once RS-15 went into eclipse the beacon died altogether.

It's hard listening this bird die.
