Can't wait till the X-band antenna is setup (higher bandwidth direct to Earth link) and the panoramic HD photos are taken later this week.

Looks like they are using BPSK, with ability to use QPSK in future.

I believe I heard that still prefer to go through the orbiters, even with the higher bandwidth.
