Attempts to recover the 20 year-old amateur radio satellite AO-27 are continuing and signals have been received on 436.795 MHz.

On the AMSAT Bulletin Board Reid W4UPD reports:

“Heard AO27 a couple of times. Both yesterday and today [Nov. 10]. Today I heard it around 18:10 UT. The telemetry was good and strong. Hopefully they can get this old girl working again as well.”
