Re: COMPASS commands



Hi Mike,

Home again and back in business re Compass.

Sent your new revised commands at 2131 UT and all acknowledged OK.
Compass had just started a beacon at AOS and I received another one 10 min
later.  Both identical data except for battery temperature as shown below.

Hi all,

 

I got a lot beacons and we can see that COMPASS survives all the eclipses.
The battery voltage is increased to 3.67 volts.

Please keep on trying to listen the beacon and send the following commands:

 

****13#200#     threshold heater off to -55 degr

****14#200#     threshold heater on to -55 degr

****15#255#     low batt threshold to max -> charge batteries

****16#255#     critical batt threshold to max -> emergency mode (to

save power)

 

If COMPASS receive this sequence successfully you can hear a short
confirmation beep.

 

Uplink:     145.980 MHz FM

Downlink:   437.275 MHz

 

Thanks for your time and your efforts!

 

73, Mike

DK3WN
