Don't I recall correctly that the Kursk experiment requires an entire orbit
of data?  I think I heard this in t context of low-power operation had to
keep Kursk running.

But in any case,  now that the battery is history and we only get power
for the non-eclipse part of each orbit, I'd think that would mean that Kursk
is not doing much.  I don't know what the IHU should do with the Kursk tlm
in that case, but 0 is not unreasonable.
