Status Of Other Satellites Launched With SSETI



Hi Graham,

With problems associated with many of the satellites launched with SSETI,
several of us back here have been trying to postulate different failure
mechanisms.

To try and complete the picture I was wondering if you have any word from
the Surrey folks regarding the status of their satellites TopSat and
Beijing-1 which were also aboard.

Regards...Bill - N6GHz

Hi Sion,

Thanks for your report.

I am advised that the S-band transmitter on Safir-S has not yet been
enabled - maybe sometime next week.
