Delfi usually wakes up normally when it have full sun but
recently the processor (?) gets stuck earlier and remains
quiet for the whole full sun pass. In the last pass yesterday
evening I heard telemetry couple of minutes at the start but
then again total silence in the middle of a packet frame.
There is something ill behaviour in the satellite. It does
not restart before eclipse reset. The frequency has been
145.930 all the time.
The next good possibility to hear Delfi awake is 19:07 UTC
when Delfi gets full sun and we are just in the footprint.
