Well, I guess that answers the question posted earlier...  MET apparently resets when the satellite starts up AFTER the 10-15 minute safety delay, not when it first sees the Sun and starts its wake-up sequence.

Satellite is high power mode. Strong Signal on VHF downlink.
MET: 1 minute (must just come out of reset ?)
Battery Voltage: 35.7 V
Current: - 4 mA
Temp: 26.5 Deg.
Heard several greeting messages, voice telemetry and 2 very nice sstv pictures. Attached one, but not sure if that goes thru to the mailing list.
