Hi All

This week LES-5 was recovered on radio.  It's sending seemingly coherent 
telemetry on 236.7487MHz.

Ironically it only had one small battery that was intended to turn the 
thing off after 5 years.  "You only had one job" comes to mind...

Anyone ever observe this visually?  It's passing over EU now. Hint, hint 
Cees :-)

Regards,

Scott Tilley
