That is great news!
I just worked a northbound US pass starting at about 0740z Tuesday
morning and the beacon was nice and strong, and I was strong on the
downlink.  Unfortunately I was the only one on :(  As someone else
noted, there was fairly strong fades, but those were the same as had
been observed before the "event"

Glad to see it back!
