COMPASS-1 now in powersafe mode

COMPASS was transmitting again this morning and I disabled the FM TX. Based on the actually HK telemetry COMPASS did a reset this morning and the heater was on intermittent. COMPASS was in DETUMBLING mode so I assume the reset was shortly before my AOS. I set the thresholds new and compared this with HK requests. Then I switched COMPASS into SAFE mode and DISABLED the FM TX.

Last night we decided to leave COMPASS now in SAFE Mode. In this mode all external hardware resources are switched off. That means also the ADCS is not working and the temperature values are set to invalid. The goal is to keep alive COMPASS as long as possible. So we have to think about a new strategy to get housekeeping data (maybe only once per day).
