My apologies. I posted the wrong weekly schedule in my previous post. Here's the correct schedule: https://stereodata.nascom.nasa.gov/data/moc_sds/behind/data_products/weekly_schedule/behind_2017_072_04.ws

So yesterday's track that successfully recovered the carrier signal from STEREO-B began at 1535 UTC and ended at 2005 UTC. Today's track begins at 1450 UTC and ends at 2120 UTC. The actual carrier recovery efforts begin at 1455 UTC. Also today's efforts will be made using the big 70 m dish at Goldstone, DSN-14 which is currently busy with New Horizons.

Carrier recovery has begun. There seems to have been a switch in dishes though, it is now using DSN-26, the same as yesterday.

What is a stereo plot? Never heard of that and google turns up nothing relevant. And do you mean MESSENGER, the Mercury probe?

Goto https://stereo-ssc.nascom.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/make_where_gif
Scroll down and you are able to enter what to search for.  Messenger has a tick box, tick that and generate plot for inner solar system.  The image shows Messenger position but I cannot understand why as it crashed into Mercury. Tnx

It also offers the option of plotting Rosetta's and Ulysses' courses, both of which are decommissioned and/or untrackable, as well as MAVEN's cruise phase (already over). Just an out-of-date applet.


The STEREO thread has up-to-date information about the mission (esp. B's status) if you're interested in that.
