I have one day off and tried to command COMPASS in full sunlight.
The first pass (for Europe) this morning was low, only 6°. All commands were
accepted and confirmed several time by COMPASS.
At 0801UTC the beacon came with 00 compass ff0660000000002100009800ff
It shows, that the heater was still on in spite of confirmed commands. I
will try the next pass (nearly 90°)
