Hi Tom,

Many thanks for the details of how you all managed to create a configuration 
that has provided a "new" satellite when the bird became of age on its 
eighteen birthday... a truly amazing feat by everyone concerned.

It may also be worthy of note that AO16 also clocked up a total of 94000 
orbits yesterday.... that's a great tribute to the Nicad cells used in the 
battery - I wonder if they were also from the same stable as those that 
survived for so long on UO11?
