Hi all,


COMPASS-1 is back in NORMAL mode. At 21:44 UTC I could command successfully
the satellite. Today the battery voltage seems locked at 4.0 volts.


Thanks to all - this is truly a worldwide ham radio effort - thanks so much
for your help.



PLEASE do NOT send any commands to COMPASS until further notice



I will publish the commands for requesting housekeeping data and additional
information tomorrow. Meanwhile please listen to the beacon and keep your
fingers crossed that COMPASS will remain in its normal mode. We are on the
right way !
