AO-51 data is not limited to the US normally, but is sometimes off due to
the operating mode. One of the AO-51 pages gives a URL for the TLM program,
as well as some other useful information:
Here is a page which includes info on modifying the FT-736 for 9600 baud:
I am certain you will get some good recommendations for starter satellites,
but satellite status pages will give you some idea what is available:

Subject: [amsat-bb] Telemetry for a newbie
My Gulf antenna arrived last week and togther with my recently aquired
FT-736 I should be up and running within the month.
My initial reason for building my satellite station was to receive and
decode telemetry from the sats, hoping to monitor their condition over a
period of time. I realise that some transmit TLM via morse, some via AX25,
and some via 96K packet.
What would be the best sat to start with, especially AX25? - Does AO51 send
TLM all the time or only over the USA? What resource is the best for
reading? Does the F&-736 need modifying for high speed packet reception?
Many thanks for any help.
