Hi, Dear Mike,
thank you very much your support our Masat-1, and publish regularly the telemetry data. We were in big tension on afternoon 2.-th of May, because we had Alert from JSpOC/Space Correspondence about a very close approach between Masat-1 and an old russian spacescraft, Meteor 2-3. Finally the “meeting” wasnot “chatastophic”, and dont died our small sat, we received the new telemetry data from radio amateurs, confirm it, the Masat-1 is working more.
The United States Joint Space Operations Center (JSpOC) has identified a
predicted conjunction between MASAT-1 (SCC# 38081) and SCC# 19336.
Primary Object MASAT-1 (SCC# 38081)
Secondary Object: SCC# 19363
Time of Closest Approach: 02 MAY 2013 17:12 UTC
Overall miss distance: 170 meters

I summarized our amateur activity, connected to the Close Approach event by Masat-1 and Meteor 3-2. We havenot too much practices/tools/resources, to prepare such an event, but we tried to use that, we have.
