FundingUniversities, institutions, and government funding agencies are reconsidering practices, policies, and funding structures for ongoing and new research endeavors. They are exploring deeper funding for research and stronger workforce preparation initiatives that could signal opportunities for public health and research campuses to pool their resources and energize their thinking. While certain exemptions exist for accessing facilities to maintain equipment, preserve essential experiments, or protect animal populations, a majority of research projects have been postponed or cancelled. These delays are requiring researchers to work closely with funding agencies to develop guidelines and clarify what work can continue off campus.
With the new DLR1020 (two channels) and DLR1060 (six channels; soon to be ten channels using the latest customer programming software,) Motorola has come up with a more compact form factor and a simpler design that uses the same technology. Now, with the choice of 18 possible talkgroups plus a four-digit ID number, there are almost 200,000 possible combinations to choose from.
But the DTRs were known for long battery life, and the standard battery that comes in the 410 and 550 was good for 14.5 hours, even though it is smaller at 1200 mAh. The extended battery in the 650 (and can be fitted to any DTR radio) is 1500 mAh, and is rated at 19 hours.
CLARITYThe DTR has always had among the best clarity of any two-way radio. Being digital, it will not even transmit unless another radio is in range, and sound is always clear even out to the limits of reception. The nature of digital is that the voice always comes across as 100% or nothing; there are no fuzzy, barely-readable transmissions from the fringes of range.
I recall I had to start with a factory default DLR1060 profile that comes with a new enough version CPS. I used R06.00 CPS at the time. 10 channel capability started with R05.01 CPS. Prior to my fleet of DLR1060s, I owned a pair of DLR1060s back in 2015 right after they first came out and used R05.00 CPS and it supported only 6 channels. I later sold that pair of DLR1060s to a coworker and he loves them. I sold them after getting a fleet of legacy DTR650 radios in early 2017. In late 2017, I added the fleet of 6 DLR1060s. I kept my DTR650 fleet and sold the DLR1060 fleet after getting my DTR700 fleet in January 2019. So today I have a fleet of legacy DTR650s and a fleet of DTR700s.
Once your admission time has begun most visitors make it through the entire exhibit space in 45 minutes to one hour however there is no time limit once you have passed through the entry area. Any room or show that you would like to stay in, you are welcome to let the exhibition attendants know that you would like to stay longer or see the show again.
Earlier pictures indicates that there might be electric machining that erodes the surface. When the comet approaches sun, this process may increase considerably and that may then increase surface temperature more than increased sunlight can do alone. Therefore recharging batteries may be easier than anticipated even if the solar panels cannot catch good amount of sunlight. So I believe there are much better changes to wake up Philae again than we dare to think.
Would not be at all surprised that Philae will come back on at some point. We know that Philae is not damaged and all of the onboard instruments and onboard computer are all in great shape. I think Philae will be back.
Will we receive any information on the preliminary data that was received last night Did you receive any data to determin if the turn allowed for a greater charge to the battery or was this too close to the end of battery life to receive that information
If ESA had some kind of nuclear power in their hands at the time and there was no major problem, we might have been able to watch the comet over its whole orbit or a few. Sure, Rosetta would run out of its fuel eventually but if it stayed in sufficiently low bound orbit it could watch the comet passively for very long time.
The legs of Philae should have been built with joints with ratchets. So, by touching the surface of the comet they would bend and absorb the energy of the landing by the friction of movement of the turnstiles. Thus, the probe would not have bounced out of the planned landing site.

The forethought and planning that went into this mission has been proven to be exemplary, the ability to overcome problems and adapt to unexpected circumstances is clear evidence of that. The wonder and joy that has been brought by this mission is prompting people to ask when is the next one. This amount of planning does not happen in a few months, let alone the time it takes to travel such huge distances, but there are other exciting non ESA missions to look forward to.
Due to the rather strange shape of the comet it seems to me that gravity in the area of the neck must be close to 0. This would be caused by the two main parts pulling in different directions. This could be related with the ejection of material from that area.
What you Konstantin is poiting out is exactly what I have been wondering since before the countdown to the landing operation began. Of course the Mission team must have wanted to land on flat area to make Philae sirvive the landing. But what if it would happen to end up at a place with less Sunlight!! If there are Mission scientist who have wanted to study the comet when the comet gets closer to The Sun after March 2015, this might be rather a favourable situation!
My surprise is that some voices from the Mission team sound like they have confidence in Philae to wake up and study the comet again. Because it means they see their instruments onboard will survive these coming months of cold temperature even though Philae is sleeping (perhaps without heater working).
A question. Looking far ahead, how long is 67P expected to last intact (with Philae on it) Could be quite a surprise for some far future explorer (terrestrial, or non). Is there anything on Philae to show where it has come from 59ce067264
