There are at least a few more days from an orbital standpoint, and so far
the electronics are holding up. BOTE calculation gives a descent rate
approaching 5 km/day, and rapidly increasing.
Just remember that as a practical matter it will be impossible to have Keps
with the accuracy we are use to having, because they are literally changing
significantly from orbit to orbit. Leave a wide window on the window. ;)

Does anyone have a prediction of the lowest altitude for ARISSat-1 and
still have it be functional? With the latest Keps I show its altitude
around 155 miles.
Depending of signal strength on today's Cincinnati passes I might try
another SSTV via the Transponder adjusting my Tx to receive on 145.930
MHz (+/- depending on location). Hope others will also try with voice and
