JARL command team announced
Eclipse of FO-29 is 11/01 0%  11/10 5%  11/20 14%  11/30 17%. It goes up 
gradually. The temperature of the satellite falls with an increase of 
eclipse. It is considered as one of the reason that the temperature of 
FO-29's equipment is too high to accept the command. FO-29's equipment 
is designed to work for wide temperature range. However because of time 
degradation, it is to be considered that some component may have lower 
performance. JARL command team sends the command to FO-29 on the every 
weekend continuously. We are thinking that FO-29 will accept command 
when the temperature of equipment cools down to certain level.
