Hi All,

   just to be a little more clear on this...
transponder definition...

Transponder - Electronic package aboard a telecommunications satellite that 1) 
receives transmissions from earth (uplink); 2) changes signal frequency; 3) 
amplifies the signal; and, 4) transmits the signal to earth (downlink).

the Transmitter is on, the beacon is running,but...

the TRANSPONDER for U/S or L/S is OFF...

but per Staceys note... couple weeks maybe it will be back on
