[amsat-bb] Help with MixW2 getting AO-51 TLM

I have upgraded my MixW2 (demo) to vers 2.18 and going over settings
to receive 9600 bps FM AX.25 telemetry from AO-51. I doing this in
hopes to get a good test before trying to receive CAPE-1 after launch March 27.
Long time ago I had it working with virtual connection with tlmEcho
program, but I am just wanting to recover raw telemetry for CAPE-1
since no decoding sw is available for CAPE-1 to my knowledge.
I tried capturing some on the last pass which was north of me, but I
had the wrong frequency for most of the pass. Still tuning near
435.150 toward the end of the pass I could not detect any signal
(quieting) from the 9600 packet signal. I know that 9600 does not
provide sound that is heard but I recall that it should provide some
quieting in the passband.
I wonder if anyone is using MixW2 with tlmEcho to recover AO-51
tlm? I sure would appreciate having someone check my sw settings for
MixW2. There is no local source of 9600 packet to use for
checkout. I am stumped why MixW2 comes up with a window stating my
demo period has expired as I just downloaded it yesterday (supposed
to get 15-day free demo period). Will this kill any chance of retrieving data?
