Dear FO-29 friends:
Sadly, I have to report that I heard no sign of our beloved satellite Fuji OSCAR 29 this morning on orbit 52,751 which was in range of my station from 12:03 through 12:12 UTC. I was holding out hope that it would respond to commands from JARL Monday morning to turn on again, but so far that has not happened. I am located in EM59 which is Central Illinois.
If anyone has any recent news please share it with us. I have been using the Mode J satellites since the days of OSCAR 8 and FO-20 & FO-29 have been superb satellites that followed the pioneering work of AO-8. Hopefully, there will be another Fuji Oscar Mode J satellite launched in the future.
73 for now,
