N8HM notes, "AO-73 is a fantastic satellite, but it can be a challenge due to the transponder's frequency drift. With the recent technical issues, we don't know how long it will be available. Get on and make some QSOs so that more operators can receive this award!"

Any idea if AO-73's transponder will ever be re-enabled?
I've search the -bb and looked at funcube.org.uk. Nothing forthcoming from those outlets.
Was there a hardware failure?
