Is there any update on keps for Delfi-C3?  Uploading the launch keps 
gave me questionable results with NOVA.  Nothing heard here but not 
sure that I listened at the correct time.

I will try again at 8:16utc pass for Cute-1.7 (keps per Hiroki 
Ashida), but will it be out of eclipse?  We are in local night-time 
here in BP40IQ since 5:52utc.  According to NOVA the sun terminator 
will be crossed by Cute-1.7 at 8:24utc northbound.  I am heading to 
bed so hope to wake in an hour to observe on 144.870.  I have not 
installed the telemetry sw so am only hoping to detect a signal.
