Hi Domenico and others,

Commands were sent during 03:20 UT pass over India. But, unfortunately  
the commands were not been acknowledged and confirmed by the  
telemetry. The next opportunity is at 14:00 UT 35 deg ascending pass  
over Bangalore, India.

we are trying our best to restore the services at the earliest with  
the constrain of having a single command & control station for VO-52.  
we do hope that, we'll be successful in our efforts, very soon.
