Hi Mak SV1BSX and All,
I was monitoring orbit 52712 of FO-29 over the atlantic but again
FO-29 was OFF with no beacon and no transponder.
I have sent my previous message as well to Mineo Wakita, JE9PEL
in the hope to get from him some official information from JAMSAT
I was not operating during orbit 52709 because of the low elevation
of FO-29 for me on East but since you was able to hear your CQ on
CW then someting was bad during orbit 52709 and 52710
Waiting for some official information from JAMSAT I will monitor
the available orbits tomorrow.
It would be very interesting is someone has a record of the CW telemetry
beacon of FO-29 just before orbit 52709
