The CW beacon is sending an intermittent solid tone lasting 2-3 seconds.  The transponder is active during the same time the 
tone is present.

Or could it be a problem on the ground somewhere in the footprint
de-sensing the satellite receiver?

I was on XW2D at1401 utc pass and experienced extreme intermittent signals
on the downlink ! Every few seconds I could hear myself , then would be
cut off  in mid sentence. K9VSW was also on but had the same problem. I
would hear his signal , then he would be cut off as well. Signal when
present was strong but there is a definite problem in the satellite  JACK
