Hi Phil,

The first few passes I concentrated on telemetry.
On my last 18 deg pass I was copying myself through the transponder but with
a poor signal.  On my just completed pass I was getting good signals back
from the transponder but with a strong 6 second polarization fade.
The satellite went into eclipse halfway through the current pass and went to
its on/off mode.

Could you hear any receiver noise in the transponder passband?
