Hi Luc & all,

thank your for your observation!
We are aware of this issue, and we know what causes it, it is power /
attitude related & the way our power system works. The TX sounding distorted
sometimes is related to that also. We are currently working on a strategy to
fix this, but need a little more data from passes over our Groundstation
before we can take the proper action. And we are taking it step by step
since we certainly don't want to loose the bird!
Meanwhile, she is producing an abundance of telemetry, we're closing in on
the 70000 received frames number... amazing!
Oh, by the way, the -68.1 degrees figure you see on RAP1 (radio 1) is not a
valid reading, since that sensor is switched off because that radio is not
powered :) )

thank you all for listening and capturing telemetry!

73 on behalf of the team,

Wouter Jan Ubbels PE4WJ
