Thanks for this schedule.  

Will the transmitter be ON for a specific amount of time?  How can we
determine when the transmitter will go OFF?

JARL says: The eclipse rate of FO-29 suddenly changes from January to
February, but it seems that the possibility of consecutive operation
is low, because the malfunction occurs in the battery control circuit.

But we make a temporary operative plan and operate it, because there is
the possibility of the spontaneous cure to be before approximately 2 years.
When the surplus occurred for the electricity income and expenditure,
we review an operative plan and do it.

It is operated until time to be OFF by UVC after a transmitter turned ON
on the following date and time.

Jan.  UTC
 16   21:00-
 22   22:33-
 24   10:35-
 29   21:25-
 31   09:30-

Feb.  UTC
  5   22:00-
  7   10:00-
 11   11:40-
 12   20:53-
 14   10:40-

It does not limit the use of the analog system transponder, but
please do uplink with the reasonable power. We may cancel the use
of the next day depending on the situation of the examination use.
