Hi Mike and Robert,

All commands were sent and acknowledged at 2043 UT on the just completed
pass. Neither the test beacon nor the normal beacon were heard during the
pass.  I resent the test beacon command at 2045 which was acknowledged but
again no beacon.

I sent the heater off command on both the 0945 UT and 1142 UT eclipse passes
last night.  The command was acknowledged on the 0945 pass but then no
further commands were accepted.  No response on the 1142 pass.

Es tut mir leid Mike (sorry); a nice long pass
over Honolulu just now produced no results. 
I sent tones but received no response. Also
the beacon was not heard?? Hopefully,  
COMPASS will be "well charged" when down
N.Z. way and Alan will get a copy!

I will stick with it. Next pass is only 1 degree for 
me but will be much better down south.
