NASA SOHO high gain antenna status 1 Jul 2003

Status Report From: Goddard Space Flight Center
Posted: Tuesday, July 1, 2003

The SOHO Flight Operations Team commanded the spacecraft telemetry to low rate at 10:29 UT today during a 34-meter DSN contact. Before that, over 50% of the high rate data during the contact were being lost.

The FOT and spacecraft engineers were, however, able to reestablish medium rate downlink through the spacecraft low gain antenna at the 34-meter station, so we should be able to continue to receive scientific data in realtime only during the deepest part of the keyhole.
