Hi Alan,

I have listened to CAS-2T on several passes now. I can make the repeater
transmitter come on by transmitting on the uplink, but as others have
pointed out, nothing is repeated. The downlink is intermittent and choppy,
with no audio apparently passed through. It almost sounds like older
handhelds would sound on transmit with a low battery. I wonder if it's
possible to try turning the CW beacon off? It would be great to recover the
satellite, as it is in a very nice orbit!

73, Drew KO4MA
