    OK..... I did try again......
    
    There was something on the expected frequencies but not for the whole 
    duration of a 14 degrees elevation pass around 22:32 UTC today (Dec 19). 
    None of the other transmitters normally using the frequencies was above 
    the horizon. It suggests GFO might be transmitting intermittently or 
    there might be an attitude issue affecting aerial pointing. Time-wise, I 
    can only say it was close your day 305 element set.
    
    I checked back to Oct 27 and I logged it twice, horizon to horizon - 
    exactly on-time compared with your day 305 element set. Mission 
    operations may well have been teminated September 22 but GFO was still 
    'alive' one month after the event.
    
    I have a 70 degree pass at 00:10 UTC - I will report back if I can get a 
    timing comparison with the element set.
