unfortunately I noticed just the same. FO-29 was OFF.
BUT, during the orbit #52709 the FO-29 was workable.
It was a small accessing window for me over Asia
between 10:55-11:00 UTC with 10 degr. max Elevation,
and I'm 100% sure the FO-29 was OK because I heard
clear my CQ-CQ on Downlink (CW).
So, the "sign-OFF" happened between #52709-52710
orbit and this pass was over USA.
Maybe some friend from US can be inform us if the
FO-29 was OK over the State pass.
