To quote Radu: "..from time to time, when the
batteries are nearly empty, UWE-1 enters "3 hours charging mode". During
this time it does not send any beacon, in order to save some energy and
charge the batteries. So in case you track the satellite and you do not
receive any data, the satellite is probably in this 3 h charging mode."

We didn't receive anything either on that pass, but got a lot of data on
the next (09:54 UTC here in Ballerup). We use a nominal QRG of 437.501
