AO-7 back in full sun

It looks like AO-7 is back in a period of continuous illumination, and the 
24 hr timer is working. Perusing the data at 
http://www.planetemily.com/ao7/ao7log.php it looks like the daily mode 
change between Mode A and B is occurring around 1130 to 1145Z each day. 
Eclipses return April 3rd, 2007, and we expect the timer to be interrupted 
near this date. This is a good time to enjoy our old friend in a predictable 
manner, especially if you are a Mode A fan. Please keep your transponded 
signals from FMing as a too strong signal may reset the satellite, and make 
some contacts!
