@LRO_NASA peculates through the trees! Hopefully sending data of #VikramLander home. Image
Here's Madrid's DSN54 calling #VikramLander as heard by its signal reflecting of the Moon to my station almost 9000Km away. The signal path is over 800000km! Image
Now that's better! The trees are now out of the beam and the Madrid DSN54 signal is loud and clear! Image

Good evening all, nothing new to report here. Just getting acquisition of signal on @LRO_NASA now. Shouldn't be too much longer before the moon completely clears the trees and we can begin listening seriously. Image
The 3m dish is trained on the moon now. China's Chang'e 5 test mission orbiter is load and clear! Image
I use @LRO_NASA and CE5T1 as alignment references to ensure the large dish is aimed properly as it's field of view is rather narrow.

No status change in #Chandrayaan2 mission in last 24 hours. No signals reported from the #VikramLander, orbit of #Chandrayaan2 remains stable. No new official reports from #ISRO, speculation in the Indian media as to the cause of the landing anomaly continues.
#NASA's #DSN appears to have stopped active transmission of commands to #VikramLander to stimulate a response. DSN NOW website appears to show stations tasked to #VikramLander but emissions have not been observed.
#Chandrayaan2 orbiter continues to emit strong S-band radio signals. I found an error in my earlier period timings for the orbiter and now my data nicely matches that of @df2mz. It’s safe to say rumours of the orbiter lowering its orbit are not true. ImageImage

Many new followers from India have asked many great questions about the #Chandrayaan2 orbiter and the fate of the #VikramLander. The following thread will provide some plain English answers about what I know about the present status of the mission.
#ISRO has not released any further official updates on the mission since Sept. 10th. Which indicated the orbiter had located the lander on the surface of the #Moon. Many rumours but there is no new official reports about #VikramLander or #Chandrayaan2 orbiter since this report.
No radio signals have been copied from #VirkamLander since the landing anomaly occurred.
