A couple of hours ago, this was posted on the LituanicaSAT-1 Facebook page:

"LituanicaSAT-1 decays in a couple of weeks. Transponder always-on and
no more other experiments?" (https://www.facebook.com/Lituanicasat1)

I'm not sure if that means that the transponder has already been
turned on or will soon be turned on for the remaining life of the
satellite, but it's worth it to check it out.

Current decay prediction is July 24th: http://www.dk3wn.info/p/?cat=157

Remember to use fresh keps, preferably from CelesTrak as they are updated daily.
