 Hello Nader.

I heard the sat go into eclipse over Europe earlier in the evening. It appeared to shut down immediately it passed into darkness. The battery does not appear to have any capacity left.
Perhaps all AMSAT spacecraft should be designed to operate on solar panels alone after the battey fails. We are very lucky with ARISSat-1, not so fortunate with AO-40
