Hello All,

Today I noticed AO-16 buzzing over NA this afternoon, with it's signal abruptly cutting off, and later back on a few times for several minutes, as it aproached the North Pole.

I've no idea of the signifigance, if any that this behaviour indicates about it's declining health...  or perhaps a command station was working with it at the time?
