Err ... chaps,
This evening, Sunday the 30th of August, 21:10 GMT.
The Amsat-NA satellite status page reports FO-29 as being A-OK.
It's the 6th day of silence now - (the D.Carr page status is correct).
*NOT* very Impressive Amsat. 1 day, OK, 2 days (marginally) acceptable,
but 6 days? ... doesn't exactly incite to impress the pitential newcomer.
Yes, I *KNOW* they're volunteers. I understand the workload. The potential
newcomer doesn't - and he may wonder why he can't hear his downlink.
The newcomer probably doesn't subscribe to the ANS yet, and maybe has
never even heard! of D.Carr & Bob Bruninga.
