When posting  to AMSAT-BB, the high lighting and underlining must have been stripped.
Here is what I high lighted and underlined.
1. FO-29 is in the "high shade rate period" now.
2. "high shade rate" and by the rise of the internal 
resistance of the deterioration of the battery and by the influence of 
the temperature of the battery.

3.it is designed to turn on a transmitter automatically.
However malfunction occurred for this function in 2007.

4. The transponder has been worked without control command from control station from summer of 2008.
5. ***From this , We decided that we make the operation schedule plan, and 
manage the limit of the operative number of times in one day like last 
time to keep the electricity income and expenditure untill improve the 
"shade rate" which is in January, 2010.

6. The transmitter becomes OFF by UVC automatically in the eclipse.

All the best,
Mike (K9QHO)
