The command receivers are suplied by the redundant continous 10V supply.
As long as the bus voltage is above 10V, the regulators should work fine.

plus L-band and 70cm.

see my earlier mail..  at the moment the main battery works like a
high current consumer, which takes all the energy from the solar panels.
