AMSAT NEWS SERVICE BULLETIN 349.01 FROM AMSAT HQ SILVER SPRING, MD, DECEMBER 14, 2000 TO ALL RADIO AMATEURS BID: $ANS-349.01 AMSAT-DL President (and P3D Project leader) Dr. Karl Meinzer, DJ4ZC, and AMSAT-NA President Robin Haighton, VE3FRH, informed ANS of the current status of AMSAT OSCAR-40: AO-40 TELEMETRY TRANSMISSIONS STOP DEVELOPMENT TEAM INVESTIGATING Early Wednesday, December 13th, telemetry transmissions from AO-40 stopped while work on the 400 N propulsion system was in progress. An investigation by the AO-40 development team has begun. They are now waiting for certain on-board software events to occur on Saturday afternoon, December 16th. These are programmed to start a spacecraft emergency routine called 'command-assist' which attempts to re-establish communications. This offers the best chance of recovering evidence of the incident which made the telemetry transmissions stop. When more information becomes available, we will pass it along. Signed, Dr. Karl Meinzer, DJ4ZC (and) Robin Haighton, VE3FRH President AMSAT-DL President AMSAT-NA Stay tuned to ANS for additional bulletins from AMSAT, the official source for information on AMSAT OSCAR-40.
