 Hi John,

today morning the FO-29 @~08.30 Z / orbit #60253 it was OK, my return-signal 
on downlink was very good (as usual) and the Beacon also sent TLM.

 I was also active yesterday night, not at 22:08, but on the previous orbit.

 I noticed nothing unusual.

The FO-29 seems to be in good shape, except a small problem on a temperature 
sensor which send negative values, as pointed out on Amsat-BB.
