Yes indeed.  All set up here to work AO-10 as it came up over the
horizon, nothing. At first I though it was still in shadow but tried
again later and still nothing heard and could not hear my own downlink.

Have we hit one of those occasions where the solar panels just don't get
enough light. I seem to remember this happens from time to time.
