Re: FO-29 telemetry



  Hi Domenico, i8CVS

last night I collected the Telemetry from FO-29.

Date 27 July 2008,  Orbit #58990.  AOS 21:27, TCA 21:34, LOS 21:41.

It is very interesting to point out that, the most part of TLM collected
into Eclipe !
If I am not wrong,  just the "Data1" is on Sunlight and the rest DATA on
Eclipse.
At 21:32 the FO-29 came on the dark,  2 minutes before the TCA.

The confirming of Sunlight on "Data1" is obvious also by Solar-Panel Current
(= 1000.0 mA).
Also the battery has the biggest Voltage (16.4 ).  In the next "Data 2,3,4,
5 & 6"  where the FO-20
was on Eclipse, the Solar-Panel Current is  just 9.8 mA.

 However,  the battery voltage is droped down from 16.4 V (Data1 on
Sunlight)
to 14.2 V  (Data 6 on Eclipse).  That means 2.2 Volts lower in about 5 mins.
  I can't  say if that is normal or not. It's just my notice and probably is
OK that but,
it should be very interesting if we can find an older TLM-Data into Eclipse
in order
to compare it with this one.

  Finally, the following data are 100% OK.  As you know dr Domenico,   I am
"old fashion"
CW operator by using pencil and paper, however  I  recorded  my reception
and I confirmed
it twice,  in order to eliminate any possible fault.



Here is the collected Telemetry DATA:
