Dear Friends,

Thanks for the encouraging and supportive expressions!

Unfortunately, we are sorry to inform that the 'Expert Committee'  
overseeing the VO-52 (HAMSAT) performance has advised to extend the  
'Observation Period' by an other week.

Hence, the decision to switch on the transponder # 2 is now put 'ON  
HOLD' till further notice. In-convenience caused to the users is  

This latest decision is just only a postponement and nothing to worry  
about the health of the spacecraft. We re-assure you all that VO-52 is  
very strong and in a 'Perfect Health' condition.

We do hope that the technically competent user community would  
understand the situations involved with any Space related activities.
