AO-7 is alive and well.  Just a little differently from what it used to 
be.  It is only operational when in sunlight.  Since it only gets power 
when in the sun, it can come up in one of two modes, somewhat at random.

If you go to http://oscar.dcarr.org, you can get a rough idea as to what 
it has been doing lately based on reports from others.
