Mission operations has announced that they are suspending STEREO Behind recovery attempts until the telemetry situation improves, sometime next year. The spacecraft is now spinning at a rate of approximately once every 52 seconds, which allows only short commands to be uplinked, and does not support telemetry downlink. Communication with the spacecraft degraded over the weekend. Once a month communication attempts will resume, starting with the phased array attempt this weekend, Sep 16-17. Each month will switch between single station and phased array attempts until recovery operations resume.
