Dear Friends,
I take this opportunity to sincerely thank each and every user and  
well wishers, who have been following and monitoring closely all those  
events and activities that followed since the interruption on 28th  
February 2012.

Thanks for all those encouraging and supporting expressions!

The initial telemetry reports indicated all the crucial and critical  
parameters to be normal and satisfactory and we do hope 'HAMSAT VO-52'  
would be available with much stronger power. The overall spacecraft  
health is in 'Excellent Condition' and all that we need to do is to  
monitor the transponder parameters.

14:05 UT on 14 March was a moment of great satisfaction and joy to all  
of us here in bringing 'HAMSAT VO-52'back to life. It also gives us  
great pleasure to note that 'HAMSAT VO-52'from India/ISRO has a earned  
a name in the history of 'Amateur Radio Satellites'.

On behalf of everyone, I take this opportunity to sincerely thank  
particularly, Mr. Parimalarangan-Operations Director for his hard work  
and great efforts besides his exemplary technical competence and  
skills exhibited in recovering back 'HAMSAT VO-52'.

Also my sincere thanks to Mission Director Mr. R. Suresh and the  
entire 'HAMSAT VO-52' Mission Management and Project teams for all the  
support, encouragement and recognition provided to 'Amateur Radio  

My Good wishes to VO-52 and the transponders on-board for a 'Healthy  
and Long Life'.

My Good wishes & Greetings, once again to Williams PE1RAH.
