My recent observations:


The satellite is still experiencing abrupt termination of  telemetry
transmission. During ascending passes telemetry is transmitted once
satellite comes out of eclipse. Initial signal sometimes rough and
500Hz-1Khz above nominal frequency. Rapid warming will bring signal
frequency down to +450 Hz. Sometimes satellite telemetry starts repeatedly
after 30 to 40 packets, other times it runs for 100 to 300 packets before
abruptly stopping.


Will wait for the Delfi-C3 team to report on their attempts on working this
one out.


However, the satellite is working and active.


Stefan, VE4NSA
