If AO27 was on you would hear the carrier.  I honestly am not sure about AO27 only working in the sun since whenever I work it it is in the sun, but I don’t think it is ever scheduled to be on during overnight passes anyhow.  Someone please correct me if I am wrong.  Here is the schedule: http://www.ao27.org/AO27/index.shtml

Well I thought it only worked in the sunlight? I have tried to talk to myself on it at night time to no avail, so I have been watching it go into shadow wondering if it is working just before that, maybe I was doing something wrong, but I swear I have tried it several times.
