Dear David,

Thank you for your report.
KKS-1 was seen the change the day before yesterday,
and seems to have become mode 0 almost today.

There was a report of receiving it,
Commandstation said that he would transmit the command
at February 21st 3:33UTC.

However, there was no change in the beacon.

There is no announcement from Commandstation
about the reason etc. for restoration now.

Will I hope the reception cooperation in the future.
