Beacon was quite strong last night (RS-15 was in sunlight).  All the 
beacon did was to send a carrier every 4 and half seconds that lasted 
for 1 second, and it shifted in freq down by about 100 Hz (watched it 
on Spectran).  The freq shift I guess is from not having enough power 
to drive everything.  Beacon comes on - transponder comes on - 
satellite dies - beacon comes on - transponder etc.......

I tried to uplink with as much grunt as I can muster, 100w into 22 
ele X yagi switchable, but nothing.  I'll have a few more shots at it 
and see how it goes.
