LilacSat-2 was apparently turned on this evening by the Harbin
Institute of Technology command station, but it didn't last very long.
It appears that the satellite suffers frequent resets and the FM
transponder mode doesn't stay active for very long.

Hope to work quite a few during Field Day! Remember to submit your
score to both the ARRL and AMSAT!
