AO-10's 145.810MHz carrier is not heard in Apr 19.

UO-11 is transmitting only an unmodulated carrier with
doppler shift +/- 58kHz, total 116kHz in Apr 18.

AO-16 is transmitting only the broadcast messages with
437.026MHz. AO-16's 2401.143MHz tx turn on weekend.

LO-19 is transmitting only CW beacon.

FO-20  is transmitting only strong PSK unmodulated carrier.

UO-22 is operational with a good signal strength.

KO-23 is transmitting only an unmodulated carrier.

KO-25 is now transmitting the following message,

     "**NEWS:UHF DownLink Frequency is 436.503MHz**"

FO-29 is mode analog JA from April through July.

TO-31 is observable in common window within Thailand and Japan.
The following is the data extracted from the TO-31 window of WiSP.
PB and PG status are both "SHUT".

GO-32 is transmitting only beacon every 30 seconds as follows.

  [18Apr2001 01:19:13 UTC] TechSat-V8.8D ***
  [18Apr2001 01:19:43 UTC] TechSat-V8.8D ***

The program version in GO-32 go up to V8.8D.
The part '***' of the above beacon is an unknown telemetry.

SO-33 is transmitting a beacon every one minute.
The current time and uptime in Apr 4 is shown as follows
by 'sgs20.exe'.

    Month, Day, Year, Hour, Minute, Second
        4,   4, 2001,    8,      2,     15

    UpDays, UpHours, UpMinutes, UpSeconds
       000,      14,        21,        00

UO-36, TiungSat-1's 38400bps signals can't receive to me
since I catch UO-36 signal in Apr 2.

OO-38 is transmitting a beacon every one minute.

AO-40 is transmitting S2 beacon such as the following one block of 
the "CRC VALID" captured with WDECPSK program.
