Hello All,

A couple of reports of the latest cubesats.
Yesterday morning's pass (2008/05/16/00:05 UTC) netted
CUTE1.7+APD II - heard, recorded, decoded and sent telemetry
COMPASS-1 - heard three times during CUTE pass, must be on 3 min timer
DO-64 (Delfi) - not heard on either beacon frequency

Today's morning pass  (2008/05/16/22:52 UTC) netted
CUTE1.7+APDII - heard
COMPASS-1 - heard
SEEDS - heard in CW mode, recorded and telemetry will be sent
DO-64 - still not heard.

So in around 20 attempts, I have only heard DO-64 twice and able to decode 
packets once.  It's still turning off before it gets to the southern
