From my location apparently somewhat close in, "A" appears to have gone silent around 2/10. :( Anyone else hearing it?

I have not heard it for a while, since January perhaps?

I'm pretty sure I saw it on my waterfall (while on 160m) on 2/7 or 2/9.

Its missing here in the Phoenix valley this evening. I can hear it days and it blasts in at night so I am going to say it is QRT. An old stand by for many years, hopefully it returns once again.
