FO-29 Operation Pause (Fwd from JARL)

About "Fuji-3" Present Condition and Operation:
(Although the normal operation is checked, the operation is
 stopped for a while.)

It is as a previous report an amateur satellite "Fuji-3"
(JAS-2, FO-29, 8J1JCS) of JARL. From 21 April, 2007, although
the analog system transponder had stopped, we announce you
the subsequent present condition.

On 3 May, Thu. 16:00 (UTC),
We could check an analog system transponder (JTA) of "Fuji-3"
was worked to ON and OFF by command from a GS control office
and there was no fault in a command system.

On 4 May, Fri., we made turn ON the analog system transponder,
and the electric power income and outgo were checked. The rate
of the shade was 25%, so the electric power income and outgo
turned out that it is in a quite severe state.

Since the check of the electric power income and outgo, the
battery reconditioning, etc. are worked, we do as stopping
the operation of "Fuji-3" for a while. Although we cause users
much anxiety, we consent-wish-do.

In addition, although it may turn ON temporarily an analog
system transponder over Japan during an operation dormant period,
please refrain from use of transponder such as a loop test
and a communication.
