Hi folks,

Last week Thursday flash memory of a CAN controller on Sumbandila 
was corrupted by a probable radiation event.  It does not affect 
satellite health but prevents activation of the amateur radio 

Similar problems occurred in October 2009 and December 2010 and were 

The fix will take many days.  Activation of the repeater for Field 
Day in the USA remains a priority but is unlikely at this stage.
