Re: Cape-1 not Heard in IO92

I also tried the morning passes over the uk today. I hoped that the  
satellite would recover having been in sunlight for long time before AOS.   However, 
nothing heard.
The last time I heard Cape 1 was at 22.14 on Wednesday April 18th with the  
satellite heading north from the UK having just emerged from eclipse over Spain 
 on orbit 24.  It sent its call - Which I misread as K5USA, followed by a  
string of seven zeros which faded into the noise.
Jonathan.  Can you tell us what the satellite is programmed to do in  its 
safe modes?
What should we be listening for now?
