Hi Nick,
in the last three years ITAMSAT IO-26 has been in MBL mode, that is in safe
minimum telemetry mode.
Following the confirmation from an AMSAT-NA team that the receivers are
still working and a few attempts to reload the high level operational code
(IHT), the spacecraft was returned to this mode.
After 18 years from launch (on the 26th of September 1993) battery, solar
panels and all subsystems seem to be in fair shape. Mike DK3WN has written a
great software to decode the MBL telemetry and all reception reports are

Best regards

ITAMSAT Mission Manager
