I have plotted the revolutions on which recovery is possible tomorrow. One
means landing in Kazakstan, the other in Russia. Since I gather that
Kazakstan is the designated landing zone, the landing could take place in
the time frame 0740-0750 UT tomorrow, 24 September.

I just picked up Foton-12 telemetry on 239.5 MHz at 1508.15-1514.00 UT. the
signal was commanded on and there was a mode change to playback of recorded
daat at 1511.45 UT.
