Re: Delfi-C3 RASCAL tuning & TLE's

Here in London I can only manage to monitor evening passes. All of these  
have Delfi-C3 emerging from eclipse shortly before, or during the pass.  So  far 
it's been there on every occassion.
I managed to get a little telemetry last night, but only enough to show the  
computer has had 2216 attemps at booting up.  With about 40ish  orbits  that 
averages 50 tries per orbit 
So, immediately exiting eclipse seems the best time to get good  results.
When starting RASCAL you appear to need 3 consecutive packets on  frequency 
to sync the receive software and to decode the last packet as a line  of data.
