I was monitoring the same pass using a FCD and SDR#
I heard stations from EA DL PA GW and France without problem.
The pass was south to north with AOS (London) at 10:56 and LOS at 11:09
Activity seems to be accurately reported at http://www.amsat.org/status/

I am monitoring EO-79 since few days but nothing heard so far.
Beacon is always ok but the transponder seems to be off.
I have followed the 1100 utc pass but nothing up to the satellite was over Spain when I have switched off the radio.
