[amsat-bb] Rather frustrating AO-27 pass

I usually have no problems working AO-27 but a few minutes ago during 
the 2100 UTC pass over DM04 the pass started out with telemetry, some 
odd beeping and what sounded like packet. The pass was from south to 
north so like usual Spanish comms were heard but as AO-27 approached max 
elevation instead of getting a loud signal the bird went quiet and a few 
seconds later I found it jumped 10 kHz. I tried calling CQ and stations 
directly but apparently no one heard me. For those of you on at that 
time was I getting into the bird at all?
