ANDE-MAA is alive and well. We have been communicating with her today, and signals are comparable to PCSAT-1. I even activated the voice synthesizer for a test today. Here is the good news from Cheyenne Mountain:
> Just wanted to give you an update for our tracking of
> ANDE. It appears as if we are currently tracking five
> pieces from the ANDE deployment. SCC# 29663 is still
> the ID on record and we have built four additional
> analyst satellites with the remaining tracks.
> The pieces are separating quite nicely, but we're
> waiting on a couple additional SSN sensors tracks before
> we catalog the remaining pieces. I'll try to pass along
> SCC ID numbers for the other four pieces as soon
> as I have been informed.
