Was able to logon to ANDE-2 at 20 degrees elevation and set TE 1 (twice, to get value confirmed).

13:05 CET pass:
ANDE is now flying faster, so less and less time is available each pass.
Tried to logon to ANDE-2 during the 78 degrees elevation pass,but only after 2 attempts I got logged on.
However, I was not able to submit the TE 1 command on time. My link got broken as can be seen below:
