Dear All,

For the first time this morning (26th December 2009 at 0815 UTC, 45 Deg
Elevation), the linear transponder of XW-1 / HO-68 was turned on over Kuala
Lumpur, Malaysia.  The transponder was sounding very well, with a couple of
high speed CW stations and JAs heard on SSB just after AOS.

Unfortunately, had too short a window to find my uplink and work the JAs. 
After the JA window has passed, managed to have a nice contact with E21EJC.
As published, the linear transponder shut off at 0819 UTC, and after this
the following CW telemetry was recorded:


Great sounding satellite, and hope to see the linear/FM transponder
activated more often over this part of the region.  BTW, is there any
particular e-mail address (maybe from the control team) that we should use
to send telemetry recordings to?

Would also like to wish all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2010.
