Just reading up on EO-79, trying to understand it.  The Amsat website 
says:  "The transponder will commence operation 27 minutes after the 
spacecraft enters sunlight and will stay on for a period of 25 minutes."

I take that to mean that the transponder will stay ON for 25 minutes 
regardless of whether the satellite is in sunlight or darkness during 
that 25 minute period.  Is that correct?

I also read:  "This schedule may be modified over the forthcoming weeks 
as a result of experience."

Have there been any changes to the schedule?

73 and many thanks in advance!
