Just dropping a quick line to report that nothing has been heard (  
Transponder or Dashboard )  from AO-73
during the evening passes over here in Europe.
I just monitored the latest pass 2000 2015 hrs today Saturday 31st  
December and could hear nothing.
I have posted to the satellite status web pages and other stations had also 
 made reports for this pass and the previous one.
I worked AO-73 this morning and it was active but observed very deep fading 
 which I put down to the spin rate.   Looking at the graph  published the 
spin rate was now projected to be in the same ball part as  when the 
satellite was launched and activated.
