I guess it would be more exciting to listen to a live stream as a
newbie. You could do pass predictions for the remote site yourself and
see how they match up with the actual AOS/LOS and such. Perhaps you
could even put a camera on the antenna to watch it move around (if you
had a tracking setup). That would be pretty cool.
You can get some of this effect with the WebSDRs, but none of them are
sat specific AFAIK
