Re: Kupon-1 out of order?

We intend to use the russian satellite KUPON-1 for V-SAT-purposes, but
just received some rumours that this satellite stopped working. No
information was been available this evening by the the state-bank (CBR).
Are you aware of any anormality ?


I can only confirm the rumours coming out of Russia and now also by UPI.
The satellite is out of control. Two stabiliziers have failed says one
report and groundcontrol canīt handle this satellite anymore. But be
aware. Official confirmation is not given yet.
