Hi all,
COMPASS is back in powersafe mode :-). 
You should hear the beacon now every 3 minutes.

Solar Panel 4 Cur      0.00 mA

Now it’s very important to collect telemetry. If the voltage climb over 4
olt we can change to NORMAL mode. 
PLEASE do NOT send any commands to COMPASS until further notice
If you send any commands you overwrite the current settings and COMPASS may
all back into emergency mode.
I will keep you informed about the next steps.
For your inf
ormation here are recent reports from today. Thank you very much
or your efforts.
