Another OSCAR is heading in

Along with ANDE FCAL (NO-62) , HitSat (HO-59) is also heading for re-entry.
Space-Track predicts  HitSat entry on May 26, 2008.

HitSat apparently has power problems and does not respond to ground 
commands. I have only heard the CW beacon during daylight passes.  
The 1200bps AFSK beacon is silent.

CW beacon is 437.275, the 1200bps AFSK beacon is 437.425.

Keps for HO-59 HitSat:

1 29484U 06041F 08131.04051668 .00205929 19207-4 38489-3 0 3776
2 29484 098.2448 243.5408 0071163 143.6223 216.9853 15.96240319 92420
