As of April 19th (JST), the situation of no CW beacon from communication
system A of ITF-2 has continued from Apr. 15(JST).
ITF-2 has two communication systems, A and B, and switches them every 50
minutes. CW beacon could be received clearly in the pass which was in the
period of system A.
The system B has the antenna to demonstrate in space. CW beacon which
seemed to be from B has been received several times at our grand station
from Apr. 15 (JST), but the intensity is still week.
Now, we have been investigating the cause, and doing our best for recovery.
Due to this problem, signals may be very weak, or not be heard in ITF-2
pass. Please note this.
We would be glad if you could send a report in the case of no signal from
Reception reports can be submitted at:
