Hi Greg.

The transponder was on during the last pass over Europe.
As far as I know the team in The Emirates have left the satellite in a mode where the transponder is on in eclipse.

So, it should be on for tonight's passes over North and South America.

The signal every 5 seconds should show up as 2 lines lasting 700mS.
The telemetry data is transmitted for 4.3 seconds between each burst of tones. (but it sounds just like noise.)

All reports appreciated.        And videos !  Thanks PY5LF


Oh, wait...

Just ran Fabricio's recording through fldigi, and I see TWO lines
(tones) during the 1 second pulses, each looking about like what I saw. 
So, the modulation is really wide, compared to what I am used to
seeing.  Didn't catch that during my pass.  Will check again next time.
