I take this opportunity to sincerely thank each and every user and well wishers, who have been following and monitoring closely all those events and activities that followed since the interruption on 28th February 2012.
Thanks for all those encouraging and supporting expressions!
The initial telemetry reports indicated all the crucial and critical parameters to be normal and satisfactory and we do hope ‘HAMSAT VO-52’ would be available with much stronger power. The overall spacecraft health is in ‘Excellent Condition’ and all that we need to do is to monitor the transponder parameters.
14:05 UT on 14 March was a moment of great satisfaction and joy to all of us here in bringing ‘HAMSAT VO-52’back to life. It also gives us great pleasure to note that ‘HAMSAT VO-52’from India/ISRO has a earned a name in the history of ‘Amateur Radio Satellites’.
On behalf of everyone, I take this opportunity to sincerely thank particularly, Mr. Parimalarangan-Operations Director for his hard work and great efforts besides his exemplary technical competence and skills exhibited in recovering back ‘HAMSAT VO-52’.
Also my sincere thanks to Mission Director Mr. R. Suresh and the entire ‘HAMSAT VO-52’ Mission Management and Project teams for all the support, encouragement and recognition provided to ‘Amateur Radio World’.
My Good wishes to VO-52 and the transponders on-board for a ‘Healthy and Long Life’.
My Good wishes & Greetings, once again to William PE1RAH.
