Here in London I can only manage to monitor evening passes. All of these
have Delfi-C3 emerging from eclipse shortly before, or during the pass. So far
it's been there on every occassion.
I managed to get a little telemetry last night, but only enough to show the
computer has had 2216 attemps at booting up. With about 40ish orbits that
averages 50 tries per orbit
So, immediately exiting eclipse seems the best time to get good results.
When starting RASCAL you appear to need 3 consecutive packets on frequency
to sync the receive software and to decode the last packet as a line of data.
