This picked off Facebook.

    "Are you *communicado* yet?"

As far as I can tell, when "Communicado" is used, it is exclusively as
an invented proper noun, e.g., a company or a product name, an on-line
nickname, etc. This is the first time I've encountered it naked (in
English) as an antonym of "incommunicado".

But, as I keep repeating, I live a fairly sheltered life.
