Next event is the switch to the low gain antenna. No more hi-speed telemetry from MRO for a while.

Awesome work guys....please keep this going as I'm being pulled slightly off by doing some media coverage of this (even did an interview with my local radio station - that's a first! :) ) and the end of the May window for STS-121 :(

They have now made the switch to the LGA. Expected LOS while DSN reaquires the signal.

DSN has reaquired the signal from MRO, this time on the low gain antenna.

Things are a little tense in mission control at the moment.
