cause, collecting information of what happened before the repeater 
stops.  If you collected and/or analyze telemetry, it can helpwith the 
future restoration and planning of the command station. We ask you to 
help us by providing the following information regarding "Fuji 3" to the 
JARL technical section.

    2. after 2007 April 20th 16: 00 (JST): repeater operational 
details/observations (CW telemetry for the repeater including those 
times when it is operational or not operational)
    3. If there are phenomenon which you believe relevant, such as
