I thought this would interest the list considering the recent 
conversation on VO-52 and FM vs. SSB modes.  After CAPE-1 disappeared 
for a couple days, it decided to make it's re-debut on VO-52's 
transponder.  They just happened to be in view as CAPE-1 came out of 
eclipse and decided to wake up again.

Hi Jussi,
That sounds interesting :-)
CAPE1 - one of the cubesats just launched April 17th transmit
at 435.245 MHz with CW (HEX data).
We have not heard it since April 18th ?
I just checked and they can "see" one another.
