We are hearing some interesting things from CAPE, one of the Cubesats from
Wallops. We are hearing 1 minute AX.25 telemetry, and we have heard two
Voice tests, and it has a CW message. All three modes in a Cubesat and on
the APRS 145.825 downlink... neat. The voice might be DSB? And we are
monitoiring in FM.
We haven't copied the AX.25 because all our primary receivers are
monitoring for DRAGONSAT on other frequency.

valid ham radio licence!
>> Then why are those cubesats using amateur frequencies?
