FWIW   it's just passed over Europe in transponder mode. (22.25UTC)
The map at the bottom of the page http://www.amsat.org/tlm/  shows all command stations are within the USA
MM0KJG  /  EA1JM and G5RR  all heard with good signals

For the
benefit of those of us outside of the United States, is this
test only going on
when over North America, going back to safe mode
otherwise? Just wanted to know
whether it was worth setting up to
monitor when it passes over Asia.
