Hello Mineo:

I am sorry to report that I have not heard FO-29 since 9 July.
Untilthis time the telemetry data had been looking very good
with normal battery voltage, current and a temperature of 19 deg.

Solar array current outputhas been in excess of 1000 mA.
However, I have noticed that the satellitehas been in eclipses
in recent months and that they have been getting longer with a
current  duration time  of 17 minutes with no sun each orbit.

Have the command stations tried to turn FO-29 on?
As I remember this problem  has happened before several years ago
during times of long eclipses.  However FO-29 is now 23 years old
and I am much more worried about it's condition.

I am hoping FO-29 is just "off line" resting until the eclipse
times end or are shorter. I will be sending you recent telemetry
in afuture email.

Any information you can give me would be most welcome as I am
very worried about the condition of my favorite satellite and
good friend FO-29.

Mineo: Here are 3 recent FO-29 Reports. I hope the COMMAND STATIONS
can still communicate with FO-29. Here are my most recent telemetry
reports from July 8 and 9 up to the lastday FO-29 was transmitting
a signal.

I hope the COMMAND STATIONS can still communicate with FO-29.
There is noinformation anywhere on the condition of FO-29.
If you have any information on the health and condition of FO-29,
please send it to me as soon as possible.  
The telemetry looked very good right up until the bird went silent.
