Notice regarding current state of ITF-2

ITF-2 has two communication systems (system A and B). System A is mainly used for basic operation. System B, on the other hand, is an experimental system to demonstrate the ultra-small antenna for CubeSat.

ITF-2 is configured such that it switches automatically between system A and system B with 50 minutes cycle. We have not received signal from system A since 2018/09/22. It seems that ITF-2 always transmits signal with system B.

We are finding the cause and operating ITF-2 to switch from system A to system B. If you succeed in receiving signal from system A, we would appreciate it if you could send your reception report. Your reception report may help us figure out the problem.

Thank you for your cooperation.
