From Emily Lakdawalla of The Planetary Society:
"So ISEE-3 will pass by us, ready to talk with us, but in the 30 years
since it departed Earth we've lost the ability to speak its language. I
wonder if ham radio operators will be able to pick up its carrier signal --
it's meaningless, I guess, but it feels like an honorable thing to do, a
kind of salute to the venerable ship as it passes by."
