UPLINKING and making it hard for him to send commands Maybe.  Here is
what people can look for.  Remember, the T#xxx is the number of minutes

T# will get to 100 minutes and more if it gets through Eclipse!

                                                   Only 8 mins into dark

If anyone captures T#xxx greater than T#072 on any pass, send me the
