Hmmh, interesting.  The 02:30z pass this evening over CM98 sounded like normal low power mode.  Female announcement, switched to foreign language (sounded German), SSTV picture (canned), few minutes of silence, then more talking, then silence to LOS.  No voice telemetry, and I'm not set up to record the digital stuff.

This was a directly overhead pass (on the correct side of vertical for a change!).  Next pass is in 27 minutes, 15 degrees up to the North West (my good horizon shot).  Will report back what I hear.
