Re (amsat-bb) AO40 Beacon Question

Hi folks,
I've been listening to the beacon today, with squints of 50 degrees plus and
ranges 40 - 45000 kms.
The signal was very strong at times 5, 9+ and then dropping in deep fades to
5, 4.
So it seems to bear out the predictions given by others. I guess if the
range is less and its in the middle of a deep fade it would be easy not to
find it in the first place,
