Dear All,

After a long time away from the satellites, I am pleased to report the  
reception of XW-1 over Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Time was 1416 UTC to 1435 UTC and I had a maximum elevation of 68  
degrees.  Managed to copy the beacon on 435.790 CW +/- with a very  
good signal of S9+.  Tried to work the FM and Linear transponder, but  
unfortunately could not get the downlink.

Is the transponder off during this pass?  Time permitting, will try  
out again 1.5 hours from now.

Congratulations to the China team for the very successful launch.

Sion Chow Q. C.,
