[amsat-bb] AO-7 Beacons

As with most things with this satellite, it depends. Usually I hear
the 145.972 MHz beacon as mostly a warbly tone. Sometimes it does send
good CW.

The 29.502 MHz beacon is only active in Mode A.

I haven't heard any reports of the 435.100 MHz Mode A or D beacon
active recently, but it's one to look out for when the transponders
are both off or it's in Mode A.
