First of all I must thank everyone who reported XW-1 signal in the past two days!

XW-1 Satellite is now running well, the satellite spins at about two degrees per second and the internal temperature of about 20C.

XW-1 FM and store-forwared transponder will be turn on again between 1205UTC and 1352UTC on Dec. 18.

In the next few weeks, XW-1 flight management team will further focus of the satellite electrical energy balance, and then determine future operations schedule of the transponders.

Please send me your report when you work through this satellite or hear downlink signal of the transponder.

Alan Kung, BA1DU
XW-1 project manager
