Hello Allen---thank you for the report! I will look into it as soon as possible, which may be early AM on Saturday May 3rd. It is possible that the increasing eclipse period is still too much for the current power level of the transmitter.
I will copy amsat-bb on this reply so others are aware of your observation.
Thank you for the timely report.
