Hi Clint,

I'm glad it worked out for you. I'm sorry we could not guarantee the mode 
the satellite would be in that night. The command team has been very busy 
collecting Whole Orbit Data and keeping a tight eye on the temperatures and 
power levels. The satellite is now in full sun, with no eclipses, for the 
next several months. The downlink power has been increased substantially, to 
630mw on the data side, and 820mw on the repeater side. Temperatures have 
increased, but are within expectations. So far, so good!

73, Drew KO4MA
