AO-40 shutdown?



This is normal, Its because of the suns relationship to the earth and
AO-40's
orbit. The satellite does not get enough sunlight for normal operation
so they
have to tilt the satellite's axis. when you tilt it the antennas are not
pointing
at us so they shut the satellite down till it gets normal sunlight, at
this time
it will be returned to service.
