UK Pass 02.56utc.

80dg Max elevation this pass, very strong signal received.

2 SSTV images plus several audio messages received.

One audio tlm as follows: 

MET = 501 minutes
IHU Temp = +26C
Control Panel Temp = +21C
Battery Voltage = 33.92V
Battery Current = -448mA

Missed a second tlm whilst trying the transponder, see below.

Local QRM obliterating the CW/Telemetry frequency.

Tumbling seems to have remained consistent.

Gave the transponder a try with 50W to an omni whilst the satellite was at
its closest but couldn't hear anything in the downlink passband.
