Thanks,

Do you know what time the beacon 1 started?  We were thinking that the 
batteries may have been gone due to overcharging.  But it looks like 
they are taking in some current?

I hope you're copying your next pass.  I think the sat may be in 
complete eclipse and that will help us determine whether we are solar 
only or not.

Thanks again,

Jonathan Wagner
