On Tuesday, Aug 30, the DSN once again detected the downlink carrier signal at 1321z from STEREO Behind. The signal was intermittent with a peak level of -159 dBm. FDF analysis of the Doppler residuals shows the signal fluctuating at ~140 seconds and a spin-axis to Earth angle of ~36 degrees. Note that the TWTA was only on for 30 minutes to conserve battery state of charge. A more stable uplink is required to load parameters necessary for conducting an autonomous momentum dump to re-establish attitude control. From Friday's IEM power on, four additional telemetry packets were processed (one was a duplicate) and will be distributed. The reaction wheel latching relays were commanded off along with all unnecessary power loads.
