Listening to this pass right now, using Mineo's keps. Quite audible
with very few fades from 5 deg. with a 1/4 wave vertical and a
mast-mounted preamp. Telemetry does have a 5 second period about every
minute or so when it goes off. The keps are not yet suitable for
doppler tuning: I'm tuning up by 2kHz right now. Hooray for the
Chinese amateur community and for those who allowed the launching
hardware to be used for our benefit!

73, Bruce
