NanoSail-D2 no receive? (22 Jan. 2011)

                                                                                (C) DK3WN

NanoSail-D2 status

STATUS: NanoSail-D ejected on 1/17/11 at approximately 1900 PST.
Beacon data was routinely received by the public throughout the world from
1/19-21/11, and telemetry indicates that the sail deployed on schedule.
As of early morning PST on 1/21/11, no beacon packets are being received.
This combined with a plunging battery voltage may mean that NanoSail-D is
effectively out of power.  The ops team and amateur radio operators around
 the world are still making attempts to make contact with the spacecraft.

We will be tracking the de-orbiting of NanoSail-D over the next few months,
and we will post any available visual photographs of the satellite, which
are being collected by the mission team at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center.
