That's good news!  Congradulations to the whole Echo "crew"!

Please keep us informed to when the beacon is started so many of us can be
looking for it.  It appears Echo passes within range of my station almost
every orbit over the North Pole (using the pre-launch keps Ken N2WWD
provided).  I see your updated numbers and will install them.  Thanks Lee
for the telemetery decoder link.  I will install that and be looking for
the signal.
