I did not hear FO-29 during orbit 52714. Last Tuesday afternoon I was working the satellite from the Holland ARC clubhouse and noticed that my downlinked signal was intermittent and FMing quite severely. At first I attributed this to the rig (an old Kenwood TS-700A with mechanical tuning) but listening "on the input" revealed my uplink signal to be pure and steady. So I guess this bird has been sick for some time.

Like everyone, I really hope that the control ops can save this satellite.
