Alphasat is up and running again, though the frequency has changed. It is now 1546.25. There is not a way through the GUI to change the frequency, so it will require you to edit a config file. We'll have instructions about this in a couple of days.
You need to change the frequency here: /etc/skylark_config.json
The web shop purposefully has no mention of the Outernet broadcast, as we do not want anyone to buy any of our products specifically for reception of data broadcast. It's a free service and as such, there is no guarantee that it will always be around. But based on your feedback, I'll change things so that potential customers are very clear about the nature of the free broadcast.
