I was looking on http://oscar.dcarr.org/ and noticed that FO-29 has
not been reported as active since early (UTC) Thursday.  Did something 
happen to it?  

If FO-29 is not available tomorrow, that will only have an effect
on one pass at the hamfest I'll attend in Tucson AZ.  I was hoping
to work one pass around 1300 UTC at the hamfest site, to see if a 
different antenna could overcome the military QRM I encountered 
trying to work FO-29 at that location a couple of years ago.  Later 
in the day, AO-7 should be back in mode B - and its passes were coming 
by very close to the predicted times for FO-29.  I still don't know 
exactly where I'll drive tomorrow after that hamfest, and may leave
it to the APRS track to show where I'm at in southeastern Arizona
(heading to DM51/DM52 if I'm south of I-10, DM52/DM53 if I am north 
of I-10, or the at Arizona/New Mexico state line in DM52 if I am
parked along I-10) at http://aprs.fi/wd9ewk-7
