I've tried to listen for it, but have had no luck.  Last time I worked AO-27
was last Thursday (20th).  I e-mailed the 3 AO-27 control ops using the
addresses on the www.ao27.org web site yesterday.  I did not get a
response from any of them, but that web site now shows the current
AO-27 status as "Reported as OFF".

At least SO-50's passes are currently in the same general timeframe as
AO-27's typical passes.  For a little while, I have a reason (excuse?) to
go outside the office and use the radio in the afternoon, until those passes
shift earlier away from the afternoons.
