Re: COMPASS recovery efforts :-)



Hi Mike,

****14#200# command sent twice at 1047 UT and accepted.  Did not send any
other commands.  Tried again once or twice at higher elevations but no
response.

Hi Alan,

you are really restless :-)

Yes, please try it whenever you can. If COMPASS heard during an eclipse
shows me that he didn't made a hard reset.
The most important command is the ****14#200#. If the heater remains off we
have a good chance that the batteries will be further charged in sunlight.
If the voltage reaches an value of 3.7 volts then COMAPSS will switch back
to normal mode.

What should we do without you ????

Gracefully thanks,
Mike
