The transponders on A, C, and F are active. B and D are only sending telemetry. E is apparently lost as it hasn't been heard since late October.

They work great. If you haven't yet then just Put these three Sats in your tracking software !!!! You'll be glad you did
How embarrassing -- I... I hadn't realized the transponders were active yet. I thought they were only beacons.
