No signals received from VO-52

One of my favorite satellites VO-52, was not heard over Europe on 28Feb2012. Please listen for VO-52 and submit reports to the oscar.dcarr.org website. I8CVS also didn’t hear VO-52 on a later pass. Lets hope there isn’t something wrong with this great linear transponder Satellite.

  1. We are aware of the current situation. Myself and Mani, VU2WMY tried listening
    to the beacon and work thru the satellite during the 04:05 UTC pass over India
    ( 6 degree elevation) on Feb 29th but nothing was heard. I will post further
    updates when I hear from ISRO on the current status and next steps.
