I listed to turksat for the first couple of days in orbit,the becon was weak for the first day,there were reports that the transponder had been heard also weak,i did not hear it, I did try and put a signal through it  while the becon was on but nothing heard...the becon lasted a few days and got very weak until not heard...my throughts are that some how the solar cells did not charge..and its a dead duck...I was hoping for great things like a few of us but looks like its dead.Paul. 2E1EUB
