Justin, KI6EPH: As many of you know, CP6 has stopped beaconing, we think, due to a failure in the C&DH processor. This is implied from the fact we are still able to contact one of the two comm processors. If the C&DH were still functioning, the two comms should be alternately powered on every 5 minutes. This of course comes as a disappointment but the mission is by no means a failure. We learned a great deal about the functionality of our hardware, and with your help, gathered more data (5.24 MB) than our previous two satellites combined.

If there are any changes we will be sure to send out a notification.

On behalf of the PolySat team here at Cal Poly, thank you for your time and support! Regards and 73,
