 Hi Stuart,
    As of right now, ARISSat-1 is up.  Telemetry has come in from multiple ground 
stations within the last few minutes.

    Depending on the orbit, there is often a delay between the time when ARISSat comes
out of eclipse and the time when it starts transmitting telemetry.  If anyone in the satellite's
footprint is running ARISSatTLM and sending telemetry into the Internet telemetry server,
then the telemetry web pages will get updated (within about a minute).  Note that 
sometimes the orbit takes the satellite out over the Pacific and over areas of the world 
without any active ground stations (that receive the telemetry), so it can be two or 
three hours before ARISSat-1 goes over another groundstation that is submitting telemetry
and hence the web page could be two or three hours "old" and that does not indicate a

The telemetry web pages are at

*Hi All,

I was listening on the 145.95 Voice telemetry Beacon Freq.
@ 1310 UTC pass here in ENY & didn't hear a peep from
ARISSat-1 , & was wondering if it has gone silent?
