I also didn't anything on this morning's pass, I gave it up aboutv2 minutes before LOS, so if there was a carrier, I didn't hear it.

I tried again on the 1825ut pass. Again nothing from Tabitha, but I did hear some voices in the noise, but couldn't make anything out. Apparently it was turned on again just after that pass. 

I'll try for tanyusha 2 tomorrow..

​Hi JoAnne and Joe!

I didn't hear the satellite's messages during a pass over the
southwestern USA this morning, just before 1200 UTC (8am EDT,
or 5am PDT). Near the end of the pass, just after 1200 UTC, I
did hear a carrier on 145.800 MHz for a couple of instances.
No audio, but a carrier - like something was keying the input
of the cross-band repeater on the TM-D710G. Maybe the batteries
in the satellite are exhausted, and need a recharge. Or we'll
have to wait for the other satellite to be activated, possibly
tomorrow if the schedule holds.
