JAB1 has not been tracking satellites since DoY 054, after a short reprieve from it's last antenna failure. Unfortunately access to the site is not possible at the moment, due to road closures caused by heavy rainfall. We suspect that the antenna and antenna cable may be damaged and may need replacement. But access to the site is likely to be difficult until the tropical storms have calmed down, approximately in mid April.  

As a consequence we will have to temporarily shutdown JAB1 until we are able to confirm and repair the faults on site.

I apologise for any inconvenience this temporary closure may cause.
