Hello all,

When HO-68 was at AOS this evening here in Europe I decoded a telemetry 
line at 19u18 utc before making contacts on the transponder.

PA Output RF Switch Status    : PA1 Works (Transponder and Beacon)
Transponder Working Status    : Beacon and Linear Transponder
Transponder Temperature       : 25 C
Beacon RF Output Power        : 0 mW
Beacon Power Supply Volts     : 5 V
Receiver Power Supply Curr    : 250 mA
Linear Transponder ACG Volts  : 3,2 V
Transponder RF Output Power   : 1638 mW
Transponder PA Curr           : 540 mA
Linear Transponder Up Conv    : 242 mA
Linear Transponder Volts      : 5 V
FM Dig S/F Transponder Curr   : 0 mA
FM Dig S/F Transponder Volts  : 0 V

It's strange that the power output of the beacon is 0 mW. I did receive 
it, so it must be more than 0.
