[aprssig] Is ISS Digipeater Down?

For the last month or so, I have been monitoring 145.825 MHz and igating 
traffic from the ISS.     I have a satgate setup consisting of an Icom discone 
antennna, and a Bearcat 760 scanner with it's "tape recording" audio output 
connected to an Acer netbook running the UZ7HO Soundmodem tnc.  This setup has 
been listening 24/7 for passes, and has worked perfectly until now.

However, for the last week or so, I have heard nothing from the ISS.     Has 
anyone else noticed the same thing?   Did they move to a different frequency 
for APRS operations?   Did the crew possibly use the radio for voice contacts 
and forget to re-enable the digipeater?   Or what?
