How about AO-85? I did not see it on my Android this morning when I updated Keps Jerry...W8RQM

So I just learned today that AO-92 is dead. Does anyone know what happened?

It's not officially dead (as far as I can recall... I think they are never called "dead" until they re-enter). Also, it seems to turn on now and again (it was on and being used about a week ago, according to SatNogs observations and the amsat status page). I've also caught at least one pass where it was partially on (I caught what appeared to be a beacon, but with no DUV telemetry - and it was weak and didn't sound right either), about 2 weeks ago.
The problem seems to be battery life issues, btw.
