I am in the San Francisco, CA Bay Area. I have a Mac, and am not yet  
able to use RASCAL, but I can make a recording of the pass starting at  
0455 UTC tonight. I would very much like to contribute.

I want to be sure I set things up correctly. Please confirm that I  
should do the following:

Set radio to USB mode.
Tune to 145.870 MHz - 0.0016 MHz = 145.8684 MHz, +/- Doppler

if no signal found on that, tune to 145.930 - 0.0016 = 145.9284, +/-  

I also have a Kantronics PacketCommunicator 3 Plus. Can someone tell  
me how to configure it to decode the telemetry and produce a .kss file?

Thank you!
