No reception over NH at the predicted time of around 14:25.  I kept the
receiver on for a while before and after, but nothing.  One of my programs
said it was at 147Km; the other said 127.  If 127 is right, then it's
probably down.  Otherwise, maybe it overheated.

Also the last telemetry on the web site is for 6:02z 4Jan.   Apparently no
one else over a swarth from Mexico and Texas up through New Englad received
it either.  On the last telemetry frame, the RF temp was 88C.  Not quite
enought to fry eggs, but not good for semiconductors.

It's been a lot of fun....
