[amsat-bb] When are the linear transponders turned on?

I know that AO-73 and EO-88 are on while in eclipse and AO-73 is usually on
for the full weekend, UTC.

I often can't hear the transponders 90 minutes after sunset, though. Is
there some kind of delay or are they still illuminated? Is there a pass
predictor software that tells you when they are illuminated?

When is FO-29 on?

What about the XW-2 series? (Nobody ever seems to talk about those
satellites. Are they difficult to work?)
