Alan -

I think you are correct.
I heard the AO-7 2-meter beacon the last minute of an overhead pass at sunset (local) the next day (18th) last week -- while waiting for an ISS pass.  I actually was surprised (and pleased) to hear it on my Icom IC-211 as it was headed over Canada!

Hi Mark,

The mode A beacon was always very strong here but I have not heard it for
the last few days.  The last telemetry I copied was 17 March at 0900 UT.
