FO20 In Darkness

Hi Folks,
just tried accessing FO20 as it was passing over Europe in darkness.
Initially I heard my cw which then faded out. Held off for a minute then
repeated it. Sam adain. The return note was raspy and unstable, even with
lower uplink power.
I guess the batteries in this bird are also on their last legs after many
years of good service.
What is it like in daylight? similar to AO-7?
